My piece about Cairo, IL ran in the US print version
of TIME Magazine this week. I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback.
Best of luck to the people of Cairo and Ace of Cups.

I went to the This American Life studio in Manhattan to be interviewed
for Chicago Public Radio yesterday and talked with Richard
Steele about the history of Cairo, IL, the young punk resettlement,
and historical race relations in Southern Illinois. You can check
out the archived interview here (10 min.)

I also wrote a piece about the Tarnac Communists for the Abu Dhabi
: you can see that online here
