Congrats Jocelyn!!! I still recall your great article on Domestic Violence in 2009. Good human interest story. Hopefully, there will be even more good human interest stories under your editorial leadership. Best wishes, and good luck to you. The Palo Alto community will be cheering you on.

Cheers - Chris!
