Coming this Sunday: the latest collaboration between the Trib and one of the state's venerable newspapers. For several weeks, Matt Stiles and Brandi Grissom have been working alongside the great John Tedesco of the San Antonio Express-News on an investigative piece related to concealed handgun permits in Texas. We're honored to be partnering with the Express-News, whose editor, Bob Rivard, has long taken a progressive view of the benefits of teaming up. You can read a teaser posted yesterday by Tedesco here.
This project comes on the heels of our excellent collaborations with the Houston Chronicle and the El Paso Times, and it precedes another big project with the Chron that should see publication in a couple of weeks. The hang-separately-or-survive-together mentality seems to be taking hold. Good for our business of journalism — and good for Texas.
