As noted in a comment below, the founder of the Evening Whirl just died. For those of you unfamiliar with the paper, it was a rather unique crime-fighting weekly newspaper out of St. Louis that focused on the type crime that just shows up in the police blotter in other magazines. Most crime reporting focuses on the young, white and pretty, but the Evening Whirl wrote about all sorts of crimes and criminals, even if he victims were brown and ugly.
