Express Times reporters Colin McEvoy and Precious Petty, who were at last night's Blogapalooza, hosted by LehighValleyLive at Bethlehem's beautiful ArtsQuest Center. Both are veteran reporters, and are like kids in a candy store. They spent most of the evening getting showered with compliments from Allentown bloggers like Michael Donovan, for their coverage of Allentown and surrounding Lehigh County.
In my view, the praise is warranted. The Morning Call's coverage of Allentown City Hall and Lehigh County government have long been its Achilles heel, and this friendly competition will make both papers better and the rest of us better informed.
