Our former PubliCola colleague (and the creator of SeattleCrime.com), Jonah Spangenthal-Lee, has landed a gig at the Seattle Police Department writing about crime for the SPD's Blotter blog.

Jonah, who also covered crime at the Stranger,  spent six months here at PubliCola, where he broke the news about the harsh Department of Justice report on SPD; broke the news on Phoenix Jones’ arrest; got us linked in the NYT with his coverage of the Occupy protests; and, in his first week here, reported about a man who lit his balls on fire.

We were bummed to lose Jonah, but we're thrilled to see he's landed on his feet.
