"John Hughes Leaves World for History"

A very catchy headline from David Postman. It describes John Hughes leaving the (Aberdeen) Daily World to become a historian for the Secretary of State.

Hughes is a real open-government champion. He is on the Sunshine Committee. And he's just a great guy. We wish him well.

We highly recommend his book on Grays Harbor history called On the Harbor, From Black Friday to Nirvana. It's less of a history book and more of a series of fascinating stories.
