I'm running around a lot today in Manhattan, just back from the conference in the Berkshires on organizing and journalism (updates to come yet on that).
Meanwhile, here are some photos from the Narco News Ninth Anniversary Celebration last Wednesday night in New York City...
James Wolcott, Katie Halper and Baratunde Thurston, above.
Lisa Spellman, Laurie Lewis, Laura Carlsen and Anne LaBrousse.
Simon Fitzgerald (left) and Joshua Bregman (right), veterans of the 2006 "Other Journalism Road Team" in Mexico, flanking yours truly.
Sally Cohen, Philip Shelley and Frank Camarda.
Nate Silver and Katie Halper.
Some of the 70+ good folks who attended at the loft of artist Marianne Vitale on New York's Lower East Side. (More photos to come, but I wanted y'all who supported the celebration from afar to share in just a few of the images. Check the Field Hands site for more photos from New York - and also, soon, from the conference on organizing and journalism last weekend in Rowe, Massachusetts...)
Of course, if you haven't already, you may still toss a coin or two into the cup for the worthy cause for which we gathered.
