List five things on your Inspiration Wall (real or imagined).

1. Portrait of my nemesis, Al Roker, attached to dart board

4. Rejection letter from the McClintock High School newspaper editorial
staff, circa 1997
5. My 2007 New Times "Best of Phoenix" award (Suck it, MHS newspaper

Repairing a 3-foot-tall wood and paper mache pirate ship I found by a dumpster.

What's your next big project?
The third F Minus book, tentatively titled "Cannonball!"

What's something you want Phoenix to know about you?
That is as fast as my car will go. If you "hurry-up honk" me, I will slam on the brakes.

What's something you really don't want Phoenix to know about you?

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
