A beautifully done KQED News video collaboration between reporter Lisa Morehouse -- who did a four-part series on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta for KALW (long-form) and KQED's "California Report" (shorter form) -- and producer Adam Grossberg. Very cool stuff -- especially about the Delta postal carrier who does his route by boat.
