OK Strib, Spotty dares you . . .

Since Kate Parry's defense of Katherine Kersten last Sunday, Spot and others have taken umbrage at Kate's comparison of our dear Katie to a real journalist like Nick Coleman. That got ol' Spotty to thinking. What would happen if the Strib made Katie a real reporter for a week or two?

So, here's Spot challenge to the Star Tribune:

Make Katie a general assignment reporter for two weeks. Let her come up in the rotation as you might with any other reporter. Let her report on vehicle accidents, sewer backups, fires, and human interest stories. Anything that might show up in what used to be called the "B" section. Then, print everything she writes with a byline.

Spot dares you. But he doesn't think you'll do it.
