Creative Nonfiction: "First Lede/Real Lead"

Creative Nonfiction has posted an interesting experiment - posting the submitted version of an essay - plus its published version. The editors then ask readers -and the writers - to respond.

Here's how they put it:

As promised, we continue to post essays online in a manner that pits the submitted form vs. the edited form. New this week is Maria Hummel's "Blood and Treasure," so keep the conversation going and join the discussion today.

Tell us: Did we ruin the essay? Did we make it better? Did we do anything at all? Share your thoughts with us and the rest of the CNF community.
