I've been vocal in the past about the LJW not seeking the local perspective often enough.It's only fair that I offer congratulations for offering these interviews. This is exactly the kind of local coverage of a bigger story that Lawrence deserves. I hope this kind of coverage continues. It's really great stuff.Well done Andrew Baker, Gary Bedore, Richard Gwin, Eric Sorrentino.Thank You Bill Lienhard, and Charlie Hoag. Way to bring home the gold, gentlemen.I bet Bill and Charlie could still school most of the internet commenters and message board posters in a game of H.O.R.S.E. ;)
