A Louisiana Journalist,  One Year Later
"My belief in the importance of impassioned, personal, and informed writing and editing became even more clear after Katrina and Rita unfolded," Editor Scott Jordan writes in the hurricane-anniversary issue of Lafayette, Louisiana's The Independent Weekly. Jordan describes the experiences of local journalists and argues the need for continued coverage of the area by national media (and fellow alt-weeklies). The anniversary issue also includes articles by three former Gambit Weekly writers -- Shala Carlson, Katy Reckdahl and Michael Tisserand.
