Like the Prophets of Old, George Sanchez Heads for the Desert

Where he'll be lead reporter on The Arizona Daily Star's education team, covering Tucson Unified School District 1 as well as writing about education policy and procedure across the city. George says the paper wanted someone who can produce plenty of enterprise stories.

The Daily Star has a circulation of more than a hundred thousand, about three times that of the Monterey Herald. George says he's following my advice: "Go as high as you can as fast as you can, burnout, and then go live in the woods."

That was actually a joke.

But this is no joke: Congratulations, George!
