New Times Welcomes Matthew Hendley Back To the Valley

We'd like to take a moment to introduce the newest addition to

New Times'

stable of scribes -- please join us in welcoming Matthew Hendley back to the Valley.

Loyal Valley Fever-ers may remember Hendley -- he did an internship with us last year and brought us some classic yarns about stupid politicians and naked drug addicts (including the tale of Eugene Gimzelberg, a Gilbert man who spent 36 hours in a sewer while naked and tripping on hallucinogenic mushrooms and PCP). He did such a good job with us during his internship that he was hired to work at the Broward/Palm Beach New Times, one of our sister papers in Florida.

As you can see in the above rant by conservative talk show host Mark Levin, Hendley has spent the past eight months pissing off all the right people, including far-right-wing Congressman Allen West and Florida Governor Rick Scott.

See some of Hendley's stuff here and here.

Hendley will be taking over as our lead news blogger later this week -- you're in good hands, Valley Fever-ers.
