Hello, folks — just a quick update today, from the middle of a day of story research.
The story on the Fairborn home explosion got a lot of play in news outlets across the country over the weekend — a Google News search returned “554 similar articles” to the Washington Post’s version of my story.
USA Today also picked it up from the AP, along with countless television stations and at least the following newspapers:
Jackson Sun, Miami Herald, Arizona Daily Sun, Sacramento Bee
If only I saw some of the cash earned from those quotes I used my iPhone to e-mail out of the wreckage! USA Today and Washington Post both used my two best ones.
