  • Smith's phone hasn't stopped ringing since I blogged about him last week.
Todd Smith, the Suburban Journals scribe who got shot at the infamous Kirkwood City Council meeting of February 7, 2008, and who recently found out that taking a bullet for The Man does not save your hide in a recession, will soon start freelancing for St. Louis' online-only newspaper, the St. Louis Beacon.

Of the seven people shot at the Kirkwood meeting, Smith is the only person still alive. The New York Times today ran a piece on his axing.

The frequency or type of Smith's new freelancing gig at the Beacon hasn't been specified, according to associate editor Bob Duffy.
