LINK: Check the Joplin Globe newspaper for up and close personal look at tornado

I'm chastened by the news of yesterday's tornado and great destruction in Joplin, Missouri.  If you're looking for more about how the town and its people were affected, check this link to the local newspaper, the Joplin Globe.

There's nothing like the coverage of an event like this than a functional local newspaper.  A reporter for the paper said on NPR that many of his colleagues were personally affected and who were still looking for family or who had lost their homes.
