... to strannik01, a dedicated journalist who deploys a dispassionate and careful eye as he chronicles news in some of Chicago's "news desert" communities, bringing stories of sadness, joy, and anger to readers who might otherwise miss important aspects of our city. His views, while objective, are informed by his own history, which is exactly as it should be. He also shares some of my fannish loves. A fannish reporter, FTW!
I've had the pleasure of hanging out with him (and he's been very patient with my chronically late arrivals), enjoying his wit and commentary. I look forward to more such interludes. And I hope today he is able to celebrate another year - and the beginning of a better one. Happy birthday!
