- Very compelling story, and well told. Only constructive criticism I have was at times I felt the nats dropped out to almost nothing when the track came in. - A tragic story told well and beautifully shot. - Flawless. Very gripping and sad story. This one made me feel something the other stories did not. It was a demonstration in how a journalist should tell a story and be sensitive, not exploitive.

- Great editing and good build to the story. - I think this one was my favorite of the bunch. A fun, good story with a misleading name (in a good way). Some great shots with effective editing that kept a good pace. Well done. - This was my favorite story. Its hard to imagine any newsroom that would do a story like this. Its awesome that they let you guys. I smiled the whole time.
