NEWS & FEATURES
Not all campaign books are mere boilerplate, Dan Kennedy finds. Works by eight of the Democratic hopefuls are surprisingly varied in quality, length, and candor, and include more than a couple of worthy quotes.
Going door to door, Camille Dodero got acquainted with Dean volunteers inspired by a mixture of motives as we tried to discern voters' still-mixed opinions going into the January 27 New Hampshire primary. All that in the frigid cold. Yup, it was a mixed bag.
Canvassing in the frozen hills of New Hampshire, Mike Miliard finds that Wesley Clark's campaign has made excellent use of the near-open field he's had while everyone else has been duking it out in Iowa. At this point, at least, very few undecideds are ruling him out.
Ever hopeful, Kerry-campaign volunteers leave no (cold) stone unturned in the search for Granite State votes, while back at headquarters, David Bernstein finds, the staff has one eye trained on Iowa.
Independents beware! A "new" group formed to organize the notoriously fragmented independent vote is a wolf in sheep's clothing, with a long and dicey history. Adam Reilly reports.
Tamara Wieder talks with local rocker Jen Trynin, who, after the music business chewed her up and spit her out, tucked her guitar away for years. Luckily, she didn't forget where she put it.
In the Phoenix editorial, we contend that it shouldn't take a crisis to clean up the state medical examiner's office, and that Bush-whacking O'Neill is shameless. Plus, the SJC must stick to it's same-sex-marriage ruling.
In "Out There," David Valdes-Greenwood is in puppy love.
In "Urban Buy," Genevieve Rajewski celebrates the New Year, redux.
