It's Been A While

I want to explain the general dearth of posting lately. I was hired to organize an event called the International Press Freedom Awards, and it happened last week on December 9th at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. With all the prep work for that and studying for the LSAT that I wrote on December 5th, I've been pretty busy all fall, particularly in the last few weeks. Now at least I can share some interesting reading.

Below I've embedded an e-booklet that we put together for the Press Freedom Awards. It contains articles on the worldwide culture of impunity around the murders of journalists, and the winners of this year's Press Freedom Awards: Jila Baniyaghoob, The Novaya Gazeta, and Terry Gould. These stories are somewhat unusual for this blog given my typical choices in content, but they're all interesting reads and well worth your time. They're also not happy stories, but that's kind of the point. I hope you give them some time.
