“Old-school reformers” still have the chops

PURE founding president and executive director Bernie and Joy Noven pulled off a coup over the weekend by organizing a protest at the Uptown post office over the firing of their beloved 23-year mailman, and then getting a major Sun-Times columnist to cover it .

For some reason, Brown’s column refers to Joy and Bernie as “old-school reformers” rather than “old school reformers” – or, actually, to be more correct,  “veteran school reformers,” but you get the idea!

Nice work, Novens. Your great track record suggests that you’ll get what you’re asking for.
