Mary Jo Nelson (2)

Ann DeFrange and Steve Lackmeyer both had articles yesterday remembering journalist Mary Jo Nelson. They reminded me again why I admired her so much. In Ann's article (click here to read) she noted that "Mary Jo didn't behave in a very ladylike manner at all, and that's what made her a legendary reporter." (What is the famous quote? "Well behaved women rarely make history.") Steve (click here to read his article) reminds us Mary Jo fought to preserve the city's architectural past - something we should carry forward as a tribute to her.
