The local New Orleans business magazine does an excellent job of covering social justice issues.

Obviously, it’s not the magazine’s “beat” but when it does cover the subject, it’s worth reading.

When the artist known as ReX faced tens of thousands of dollars in fines for posting positive public art, the magazine not only covered the story, but also covered his nemesis, a dangerous lunatic called the Gray Ghost who is paid by the city to essentially vandalize public property with a gray paint roll.

(If New Orleans didn’t exist, someone would have to make it up, the only problem being no one would ever believe it.)

This issue of New Orleans City Business covers a particularly vicious practice of local police, setting up homeless people for petty crimes and then charging them with felonies that could result in their imprisonment for up to a decade. Great journalism.
