Good Work, Tough Topic

Congrats to the newspaper sold on Seattle street corners by homeless folks, Real Change News, for winning a national Society of Professional Journalists Award for feature writing. It's for a story called "The Man Who Stood On The Bridge" about a sex offender who committed suicide by jumping off the Aurora Bridge in Seattle. The author, Rosette Royale, writes an unblinking account of what led Bret Hugh Winch to that desperate act.

And here's Rosette on Youtube talking about his work at Real Change:
