From the Daily News, January 13, 2012.
Everyone else wrote this story too. And so it goes.
UPDATE: This doesn’t happen enough so I feel the need to say it. My wonderful editor, Laurie Conrad, KICKED MY ASS on this story. I was burnt out from two previous profiles and my first draft was a big ball of human excrement. I’m not saying this is Pulitzer-worthy but she should get any good credit that comes out of this story because she did an phenomenal job editing it. It’s called CONRADIFICATION. Deal with it.
