The weekly update:
It was a wild week for news. Researchers at the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun, Seattle papers must have been busy trying to find background. The Minnesota papers dealing with the Wellstone crash. And the terrible events in Moscow. For awhile it's nice not to have any news in Florida, aside from the short residence of Lee Malvo and the gubernatorial campaign.
Great work has been done on John Allen Muhammad and Malvo. Amazing how much has been found, and that much of it was already available on Smoking Gun by yesterday. Findlaw has also been posting documents. What a great service these websites provide. Knight Ridder has been pulling stories and backgrounders together on a sniper page running on all the Real Cities sites, and it adds the Camden angle from Philadelphia. Coverage from the New York Times, Washington Post, of course, has been extraordinary.
