My brother’s magazine, San Francisco, has been nominated for a National Magazine Award for Public Interest for Nina Martin’s outstanding article, Innocence Lost, about the death penalty. It’s the second nomination under the editorship of Bruce Kelley. Steven Dinkelspiel is the publisher.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that Seymour Hersh’s New Yorker articles on the Abu Ghraib prison scandal are nominated in the same category.
I know I’m biased, but I think San Francisco does a wonderful job blending service articles with hard-hitting investigative pieces. It’s a tightrope all city magazines have to navigate, and San Francisco does it well.
