Drinking from the firehose: Dave Walker’s coverage
I know we’ve got him linked in the sidebar over there, but I just wanted to make sure everybody is keeping up with Dave Walker’s Treme coverage at the Times-Picayune. He’s been covering this story since last year, and the past few weeks his updates have been coming fast and furious.
There are a lot of Simon-heads who are going to be tuning in who know Homicide, The Corner, and The Wire inside-out but who are relative newcomers to New Orleans culture, so Walker has put together a crash course in background material for Treme which is required reading if you ain’t from here.
Get cracking people, there will be a test on Monday. And stay tuned for an onslaught of fascinating articles from da paper in the next few days.
