Extra, extra! Read all about it!
Yes, that is your favorite FMS executive editrix and junk entrepreneur, Ki Nassauer, gracing page C11 of Saturday's Wall Street Journal!
(The gold standard of junking meets the gold standard of journalism!)
Check out the story, written by the Journal's James R. Hagerty, reporter par excellence!
All good journalists follow the story; he went so far as remotest South Dakota to join Ki on a junk jaunt and witness the thrill of the hunt.
His story, in the Journal's regularly appearing Creating column, does not disappoint!
Watch this space for future posts and pictures from that expedition (though this scribe won't be able to match Hagerty's discerning eye for detail -- love his description of Victor Settje and his property, where Ki and Cammie scouted for treasure)!
Meanwhile, don't miss the rockin' video, shot for the Journal in Ki's Los Angeles digs (including some clips from the 2011 Junk Bonanza), and the swell (six-column!) portrait by Ramona Rosales, captured in LA's Freeway Building Materials salvage yard.
The Journal and Ki are a harmonious pairing.
The newspaper has described itself as the Diary of the American Dream. Our junking pal is living it!
Enjoy the read!
