    Thanks for the news, Jesse... ;)

    Just kidding. FYI, Jesse is the Topeka Capital-Journal KU writer, so this is a good move for him IMHO!

    Jesse is a great dude and outstanding reporter. I'm not sure anyone in the country has adapted to the new challenges of working a beat any better.

    Don't know if this is true. Just checked in with Jesse to ask. Either way, that's a pretty obvious choice for KC. I don't know why they'd choose anyone else.
