Excellent series. I just noticed this morning that USA Today picked up and followed up on the story on Buddy Blair and family in Sisters--first reported in the Bulletin.


I thought this was a great series, showing the different sides of homelessness in our community. I think it's easy to say, oh, just get a job, but once you are familiar with the individual situations you see that it's almost never that simple. Good community reporting.
