September 30, 2009 --

Atlanta Unfiltered has been named “best muckraker in lean media times” by Creative Loafing. I’m humbled. It’s a privilege to do this work. Six months ago, my biggest doubt was whether I could crank out enough material. That seems to be working out. The financial support … not so much.
