It’s not often that I’m envious of one of the Alex’s assignments, but I was of this intriguing story about an almost ghost town in one of the most toxic areas of the country on the Great Plains.

You can read the rest of the NYTimes Magazine story here about Treece, Kansas, by the writer, Wes Enzinna, and see a portfolio of Alex’s photographs, here.  I know first thing Sunday morning, I’m looking forward to buying a copy of the NYTimes to see the story in the magazine.  Call me old fashioned, but there’s something special about holding the NYTimes magazine in one’s hands…––Rebecca Norris Webb
