Impressive work by Charleston Post and Courier

The Post and Courier in Charleston has started running an investigation into domestic violence against women in South Carolina.

It's nice work , and you should read it.

My only reservation is technical -- the paper has tended to "snowfall" this a bit, and I'm not sure it is the best technique for a public policy story like this. The legislative part of it tends to get lost toward the bottom, and it also kind of gets in the way of a more general thread of telling women's stories, which works better integrally as a long-form narrative.

That the Legislature so far has resisted most changes  is important enough that I think it would be better split out and floated on the side so it stays in people's view. But that's only a minor quibble.
