Mack Reed gave everyone a chance

Once upon a time, an editor at a newspaper told me to shut down my blog. So, in order not to lose my job, I did it. I kept blogging anonymously, but it wasn’t quite the same. Mack Reed found me and offered me a venue to blog. He even let me do it anonymously – sort of. I posted for him under my married name.

Losing Mack Reed, the brain trust behind LA Voice, will be a loss for all of L.A. He managed to accomplish a feat that in theory seems too big to actually see to fruition: He provided a site for anyone in L.A. – anyone at all – to blog. Sheesh. Talk about dreaming big.

We’ll miss you, Mack.
