    2003 KATY RECKDAHL — Completed a series of articles about the lives of poor people in New Orleans for Gambit, an alternative weekly. The articles often reported on the encounters between police/local authorities and poor people. A vivid example was her article on a police crackdown on kids who tapdance for change on street corners in the Latin Quarter. The police said they were doing it because the kids weren’t properly trained as artists.
