Wanted to commend Sarah Fister Gale on her powerful piece, "Why Rick Santorum would have killed my daughter." You should read it if you haven't already. It's the type of story I love, a response to big news that's uniquely personal, but also, broadly impactful. I love featuring those stories in Salon; I love even more when they show up on Open Salon. The personal is political -- and vice versa. (Also, awww, Andy Richter tweeted it, too.)
Also, Glenn Greenwald's great, probing look into Mitt Romney finance co-chair Frank VanderSloot, and his history of going after journalistic critics, gets a nice response at Jim Romenesko's indispensible site, here, where I also gave some background on our story planning. It's a post I'm very proud to have published.
