Merc investigations editor moves on to Medill

Rick Tulsky, investigations editor at the Mercury News, is joining the Medill School of Journalism at Northwest University as its director of a new "watchdog/accountability initiative." Tulsky will "lead development of an initiative that will involve students, faculty and local organizations in identifying systemic flaws in government and public institutions and empowering citizens with the kind of knowledge that leads to change," according to a statement from Medill. Tulsky is one of the Merc's most honored staffers, having shared a Pulitzer in 1987 when he was at the Philadelphia Inquirer. He was also a Pulitzer finalist at the LA Times and Merc.

Congratulations to Mr. Tulsky are certainly called for. It's worth noting, though, that the Medill School of Journalism is part of Northwestern University (which is in Illinois) not Northwest University (which is in Washington).

As a distinguished journalist, I am sure you agree that Mr. Tulsky deserves a sharper editorial eye on his appearances in the press.
