JPat Brown is from New Orleans, lives in Boston, and writes and edits words for a living. He’ll also help you with your FOIA request, so long as you ask nicely.
He is a graduate of Bowdoin College, the former Editor-in-Chief of the alt-weekly DigBoston and Executive Editor of transparency nonprofit MuckRock, author of books on owls and FBI surveillance, and at one point ran a computer lab in a church basement. He has probably spent more time in the CIA archives than anyone, and he’s just as surprised by this fact as you are. Please ask him about J. Edgar Hoover’s favorite sandwich.
