On the left is an 18-year-old girl named Mary Lorang; on the right, a baseball player named Carmen Fanzone.
These two people, who never knew each other, helped bring some closure to Permanent Record -- at least for me. Their stories are told in the series' final article, which is up now on Slate.
My thanks to everyone who's offered feedback on the project. Many of you have asked what will happen now that the Slate articles have been published. For now, I plan to keep updating this blog periodically, and it's possible that the project may continue in another medium -- stay tuned.
I discussed Permanent Record yesterday on Minnesota Public radio. You can listen to the segment here.
