See My Beloved City

celesteheadlee.tumblr.com — I am not a native Detroiter. In fact, I wasn't thrilled about moving there when I took a job with WDET in 2001. I'd heard all the same things you have, about the crime, the poverty, the burnt out buildings and abandoned homes...

What’s Wrong With Pundits?

What Your Average American Can Learn From Journalists

celesteheadlee.tumblr.com — There's a lot of disagreement on political issues these days and that's to be expected. We're politically polarized for a number of reasons. That means all kinds of issues that shouldn't be political are now fractured down ideological lines. While that's worrisome, it doesn't surprise me or concern me the way that the polarization of science does.

Celebrating Fat Tuesday, Polish Style

I love my fountain pen. I love that it forces me...

celesteheadlee.tumblr.com — I love my fountain pen. I love that it forces me to write more slowly, and consider every word. I love that it stops working if I don't use it. The ink will dry and clog the nib, so it requires me to write.

Why Do We Need Middle Ground?

celesteheadlee.tumblr.com — Over the past couple months, I've gotten a slew of emails, phone calls, Facebook messages and tweets from people in the middle of the country telling me why their region needs more coverage. Some of them are very detailed, many of them are eloquent, all of them are passionate.
