"Unsettled" continues, and gets a plug from the New York Times
"Unsettled", a shocking 29 part series currently running in the Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram, continues today. The Passamaquoddy tribe's attorney, it is revealed, was set up by state prosecutors in a sting operation unleashed the moment he returned home from filing the tribe's first land claims suit.
The series has been receiving an overwhelmingly positive reaction here in Maine, with many readers expressing amazement and horror about some of the events. This morning, the New York Times featured it in their "Our Picks" feature on their popular smartphone app, "New York Times Now." (Image on right).
Last night I had an enjoyable chat with Chris White and Andy Verzosa on WMPG-FM's "Tuesday Night Talk Radio Club"here in Portland. In a few days, you'll be able to catch it in their online archives here.
You can find all of "Unsettled" as it appears on this landing page. And, no, there's no plan yet to release it as a book, although if everyone keeps asking we
may have to make one.
