Re: “Stephen Buel Resigns as Publisher

It pains me to see Steve Buel's long career in journalism end without proper recognition of all he has contributed to the profession over nearly four decades. So let me share a few of them here:

- The relentless pursuit of crooked politicians, such as Don Perata
- Taking on Yelp and showing how the tech company shook down business owners to bury negative reviews
- And, most famoulsy, the expose of the brutality of the Bey family, which operated with impunity and support from local politicos until the Express shined a lot on its shady operations.

There are more examples and I encourage others to share them.

It's heartbreaking to see a good and decent man villified on social media. No doubt, Steve has his flaws (like all of us). He's a stubborn motherfucker. For instance, he stubbornly thought he could make a profit investing in a dying medium and continue to support local journalism. He gave his life - and his life savings - to the cause
