In the land of -ists

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

We've neglected to welcome new brother site Houstonist into the Gothamist universe. Today they look at the NY Times travel section's look at Houston.

Speaking of Gothamist, they've got an interview with Ron Hogan, who writes about books on his litblog Beatrice, co-edits Mediabistro's Galleycat, and has written the fab gift-ready coffee table book: The Stewardess is Flying the Plane!

Chicagoist sat down with Peter Sagal, host of public radio's '30s-style quiz show, Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me! It's corny and funny and Sagal makes it all work. Who knew he was an (unwilling) screenwriter of Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights?
