City Slang: All American Boy revisited

Posted By on Thu, Apr 18, 2013 at 7:37 AM

Congrats to my MT colleagues past and present Curt Guyette, Brian Smith, ML Liebler, John Carlisle, Jack Lessenberry, Justin Rose and W. Kim Heron for such a strong showing at the SPJ Awards last night.

I was proud to help represent our newspaper and, just for the hell of it, here’s the piece that won for me, on Ty Stone.

Thanks to the Society of Professional Journalists, everyone at the Metro Times, Brian Smith for editing, Ty Stone for having an amazing story, and my wife, son and family.
