The MPR article about St. Thomas' new president had a good flow and was easy to follow. The journalist started with a lead that was general, yet specific enough to let you know what the story was going to be about. The second paragraph went into greater detail and gave the woman's name, age, and more background information on her and her appointment. The subsequent paragraphs explain why she was chosen and what the new president plans on doing during her tenure. This type of organization reflected the "fact block" style of writing we have discussed in class, making summarization of the information much easier to understand and read. There is a good mixture of direct quotes from the woman herself and other St. Thomas faculty and summarized fact blocks. I thought this was a thorough and well-written article.
