I like investigating things. I like complicated news stories. And best of all, I like it when really complicated stories are broken down and explained well.
This blog will be a place to better understand stories in the news. Sometimes the best way to explain a complex news story is with a chart, like this one I just made about the sale of The Boston Globe to Red Sox owner John Henry. Or this one I made back in April looking at what law enforcement agencies knew about Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and when they knew it.
Have a story you care about but just don't get? Find someone who is doing a great job explaining a story that others aren't? Have a story you're following and think I should be? Have an idea for a chart? I'm all ears.
