Commercial Appeal's Thomas named Sun metro columnist
Wendi Thomas (left) has been a columnist at the Commercial Appeal in Memphis since August 2003. The Baltimore Sun memo on her hiring says: "Her columns -- known for their flair and humor -- include taking on a prominent and controversial political family and calling for elected officials to sign ethical codes of conduct. She has examined potential budget cuts to after-school activities in Memphis and told stories of redemption among ex-gang members. And she has challenged a ballet teacher who won't let a pupil with dreadlocked hair perform in a recital."
