This issue marks several turning points for the Hook.
* We welcome a spring intern, Emory University student Nora Fleming.
* As mentioned a few weeks ago, longtime music reporter Mark Grabowski is headed to graduate school at Tulane. Now that he has left the building, we've turned music coverage over to this issue's cover story author, Vijith Assar.
* In another monumental shift, the "Photophile" page will soon wind up in the hands of sought-after photo artist Aaron Farrington. He is graciously allowing the in-house staff to shoot the feature for three or four weeks before he takes over in mid-June.
