The Local Files

Editor B examines Karen Gadbois' internet activism, and how one person can affect positive change locally through dedication and unconventional means.

Karen is an inspiration. Every time I post something about national politics or culture, I feel like I'm not doing my "job" of affecting change in my own city or state. National politics are easier to follow and write opinions for because they are far away. You don't change anything by doing so.

Going after the local sacred cows and aristocracy like Karen does? That's heroic.

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't watched it unfold in real-time.
