Sometimes you just have to revisit the past. So here’s a look at a somewhat carefully curated collection of stories from back when I was the editor of Weld: Birmingham’s Newspaper, which for the first few years was just called Weld for Birmingham. For five years, our scrappy little staff created carefully reported enterprise and investigative journalism while turning an alt-weekly into a chronicle for everyone in what was then Alabama’s largest city. Good times.
Although Weld’s URL has been deeded to someone else, I recently uploaded a few of my own stories to Issuu for posterity. I hope you enjoy them!
