Morton Bast comments, proofreads, fact-checks, moderates, reads, writes and reasons for TED.com. She has a B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis, a thirst for knowledge, and a medium-sized collection of Hello Kitty paraphernalia. This is her third draft of her "About me," but it probably won't be her last. She is also a New Yorker, for which there is no known cure.
