Opening Act: Shadid

For six years, my beat has been domestic politics, with an emphasis on the conservative movement's goings-on. I didn't much link or point to the work of Anthony Shadid. But I read it with awe. If you have time today, page back through his work on the Iraq War and the Arab Spring. If you're in his field, think about the work and bravery required to produce journalism that matters and journalism that lasts.
