I can’t help sharing this.
I love the way Rick Bragg writes. How can such beautiful imagery come from one person’s brain? That’s how I feel when I read good writing—simply in awe.
Anyways, you must read this piece on the po’boy. It ran in the most recent issue of Garden & Gun. I can literally taste the sweetness of the baguette, the crunch of the fried (insert shellfish-of-choice here), the spice of the remoulade, and the tang of the pickles. A po’boy is truly a beautiful thing.

I stumbled across this on 10,000 Words, my favorite site to waste time on these days: Journalism Grads: 30 Things You Should Do This Summer. This was posted in June, but I mean hey these things don’t have to actually take place over the summer. Particularly for the Knight fellows, this could be our little list of things to accomplish by the end of our program. I felt proud of myself, actually, that I already had quite a few of these checked off. And so many of these items can be taken care of by just a few clicks when we’ve got some down time in lieu of time spent Facebook lurking.
Also, this was funny: 10 news photos that took retouching too far.
Oh, and I’ll be doing some stories for The Tuscaloosa News about Alabama fans coming to Pasadena!

Two posts in a row!
This story isn’t exactly current. It’s about a month old. But I came across this original story of 97-year-old Bessie Mae Berger, who was homeless. The story and the video especially brought tears to my eyes as I imagined this woman spending every night in the front seat of an old car, longing for a warm bed, while her two sons who take care of her sleep in the back. (The video is also quite well done. I guess I enjoy more than ever looking at videos and slideshows thanks to our Media Production Tools class.) I searched the story online to find it again, when I found that thanks to the story, the three of them did find a home. Even though their living arrangements are temporary right now, it’s just a lovely reminder of what telling someone’s story can do.
