Some thoughts:

I didn’t submit anything to start with.
That paper was published in 1996–one year after I got my PhD. It was also my job market paper that got me my first job at East Carolina University, where I met John.
That paper was also part of my dissertation that won the the AAEA Outstanding PhD Dissertation Award in 1996 (talk about peaking early).
It has been cited 132 times according to the Google.
A copy of the paper can be found here, (so take THAT SSRN).
It has been cited once for each of the last two years. I think its useful life might be over.

What's your reaction?
