If all goes well on my family’s vacation, we should have gone to New York City yesterday. As I write this, lobbying among family members for various sights and events is going fast and furious, so I’ll have to report later on our ultimate choices.

Today, the blog points you toward a few of the feature stories we brought readers in 2007.

We started the year with a feature story on immigration—which has become a recurring theme in Arizona.

In April, we ran “Covering the Court,” an interview with then-New York Times reporter Linda Greenhouse. She had just completed extensive research for her book on Justice Harry Blackmun.

“Molasses and the Sticky Origins of the Fourth Amendment” in June provided an artistic and sticky look at an important right.

“Personalized Medicine and the Law” was our cover story in October.
