Off-duty police, state lawmakers, teachers, at least one active-duty military officer, and other officials are facing a reckoning after rallying for Trump in D.C. last week. (via @LindaSoReports, @andreajanuta, and @MJBerens1 for @Reuters)
Story updated tonight with arrests of more police officers and allegations of brazen crimes.
“Not gonna lie,” wrote a Texas sheriff’s staffer, “aside from my kids, this was, indeed, the best day of my life.” Amidst impeachment in D.C., many participants face a reckoning at home w/ @Reuters colleagues @LindaSoReports @andreajanuta
January 15 is my last day at the Tribune. It’s been an amazing run. I’m so grateful to all the wonderful reporters and editors who helped me along the way. I regret not being able to find a buyer for the newspaper but otherwise go out with my head high and my boots on.
Such a stellar journalist - a singular investigative juggernaut. His incredible body of work, from Cuba to Mexico to exposing Chicago corruption, is unparalleled.
1/7 After 33 years at Chicago Tribune, 28 as architecture critic, I’m taking a buyout + leaving the newspaper. It’s been an honor to cover + critique designs in the first city of American architecture + to continue the tradition begun by Paul Gapp, my Pulitzer-winning predecessor
Blair is stunningly talented, smart, dedicated, compassionate - I don't have enough adjectives. I watched him day after day, surrounded by stacks of books, in silent awe.
Amidst rioting, a distraught, bunkered Rep. Maxine Waters called the Capitol police chief. The chief: “We’re doing the best we can.” Waters: “It’s not good enough.” Gripping details from @Reuters @SusanJCornwell @LindaSoReports @andreajanuta @JTanfani
Yes! We must investigate the security breach at the Capitol today. I warned our Caucus and had an hour long conversation with the Chief of Police 4days ago. He assured me the terrorists would not be allowed on the plaza & Capitol secured. What the hell?
Thrilled to make my @BlockClubCHI debut with this freelance story in partnership with the great @NancyLStone. Kind of a contemplative story on an eccentric farmer, yes, but more generally about community and human connection. Give us a read.
Two great ink-stained journalists - a writer and photographer - come together, once again, to keep doing what they do best.
When @MJBerens1 & I wrote about problems at group homes for adults with developmental disabilities in Illinois, Arizona was held up as the gold standard for services. Thanks to great reporting by @amysilvermanaz, we now know that’s a myth about Arizona
