This bitchspace has a long and intimate history with the Tampa edition of storied alt-weekly chain Creative Loafing. The crew over there helped make LAWBI a reality after I left my full-time position as a CL staffer; most of the best stuff here ran in its print edition, and they continue to throw me work now and again. I’m totally indebted to David, Joe, Leilani, James, Eric, Ham Gravy, Alex and the rest–obviously, without that association, this honor and exposure wouldn’t have been possible.
