The incredible shrinking story

So, my 800-word osteoporosis story became a 300-word Q&A (question and answer) that ran in the Globe today. These things happen and you can’t be whiney about it. But, as a freelancer, I’ll try to sell the longer version elsewhere.

My reading of the Globe contract says I own the copyright but can’t publish the story locally for two days. Not sure what that means re: electronic publishing. I’ll play it safe and just include the link for now. More fodder for upcoming discussions on both sides of the Charles about fair use and copyright law.
