Columbia Journalism Review Quotes My Blog

A reporter for the Columbia Journalism Review quoted my blog about the steam pipe explosion that happened near my office in July. I had no idea and just found out by self-obsessive googling.

Apparently to serious journalists, I am a.k.a BlindSquirrel. Keep that on your list of my known aliases, okay? In case I try to use it for criminal activity or become a superhero. I may also answer to "Citizen Journalist" another cool title the article bestows on me and my fellow crisis bloggers.

My quote:
Others captured the event in words. Johnna Adams, a.k.a. “BlindSquirrel,” described the initial confusion on the ground: “The streets were packed with people and no one knew what had happened. I heard that a building had come down and that an electrical turbine had exploded—but nobody knew anything. I walked passed one delivery truck that was blaring its radio for everyone to hear, all I was able to hear as I walked passed was ‘people are running from the building.’ Which was not encouraging.”

Congratulations! However, you should get used to it because eventually you will be highly sought after as a famous playwright.
