Project White House, Tucson Weekly's first Reality Journalism competition, won third place in the Innovation category at last weekend's Association of Alternative Newsweeklies conference. While it's my name on the award, there's no way I could have done it without the help of Hector Acuña, TW's former art director and my frequent partner in crime, and Dave Maass, who's currently working as a staff writer for the Santa Fe Independent. And, of course, I gotta thank all the candidates who campaigned for the presidency of the United States; editor Jimmy Boegle, for saying yes to the crazy idea in the first place and letting me run with it; and the Arizona Legislature, for having such loose ballot requirements.
