It might surprise you to learn that more members of the Freakonomics Fan Club hail from New Jersey than any other state. Well, actually, all of the Freakonomics Fan Club members are from New Jersey. All two of them.
Except for my mother, Janice and Carole Szelich (president and co-president of the fan club) are the most loyal fans we have. I first met them while doing an on-air interview with my friend Michael Smerconish in Philadelphia. Later they came to see me talk in Princeton. They send my kids great gifts and indulge my wife’s gambling addiction with a steady stream of lottery scratch cards.
Below is a picture taken at the one of the fan club meetings.
