Published pieces appeared in “Orion magazine”:http://www.oriononline.org/pages/om/06-1om/Reece.html , “the Indypendent”:http://nyc.indymedia.org/en/2006/01/63264.shtml, “Grist.org”:http://www.grist.org/news/maindish/2006/02/16/caskey/, “Clamor”:http://www.clamormagazine.org/issues/36/, and the Columbia Journalism Review.
