3 weeks of grandma killing, lesbian menage a` trois killing and gangbanger shootout, my body is assaulting me with fatigue, sneezing fit

Still, it's way cooler than working at Mickey D's

Jamie Satterfield is a reporter at the Knoxville News Sentinel, in Knoxville, Tennessee. She has been covering crime for approximately… forever—she must have started working the crime beat when she was about eight years old—and describes herself as “the queen of crime writing.” She is the only journalist who has written more on the Knoxville Horror than I have.

Unfortunately, the Knoxville News Sentinel site is now subscription-only. Jamie's tweets are still a must read.

I recall when we were walking beside her during a break in the Thomas trial and you told her regarding her tweets, "You turn a vulgar practice into an art form."
