Things I’m Verbing: Catastrophes in journalism, how to adapt comic books and democracy in its purest form

It’s distressingly close to convention season, and even though Donald Trump clinched the delegates for the Republican nomination this week, I can’t imagine something won’t be worth covering in Cleveland this July. Fuse and Voto Latino are close to the end of a contest to send a young reporter to each party’s convention, and my friend Theresa Avila needs your help to get there.

You can vote for her once a day until June 1, and I strongly encourage you to do so, early and often, in the finest Chicago tradition. (Only this time, it’s totally above-board.) No matter what, if she’s a top-five finalist, Rachel Maddow will judge her entry, and holy cats, isn’t that an honor all on its own?
