San Francisco magazine would like to thank former SF Weekly staff writer Bernice Yeung for the assistance her investigative package on wrongful conviction ("Innocence Arrested," Oct. 29, 2003) provided to the San Francisco investigative article "Innocence Lost" (November 2004). It's wonderful to know that, in 2004, "Innocence Arrested" was named a finalist for the Medill School of Journalism's John Bartlow Martin Award for Public Interest Magazine Journalism, and, the very next year, "Innocence Lost" was named a finalist for the American Society of Magazine Editors' National Magazine Award for Public Interest.
Chronicle columnists Phil Matier and Andy Ross would like to thank SF Weekly writer Matt Palmquist for the help his lengthy feature story "San Mateo Confidential" (July 2, 2003) gave to the Jan. 16, 2005, Matier & Ross column headlined "Ironic twist in award to advocate for gays/Her lesbian mom had sued county over police report." It's wonderful to see the seamy details of a lesbian love triangle work in both long- and short-form journalism.

Too bad they act like nuts -- because not everything they're saying is crazy." J.M.
