New crime blog

Four Daily News reporters — Jason Kandel, Brent Hopkins, Rick Coca and Rachel Uranga — are contributing items to It's a Crime, with a Valley bias to the mix. Roll of links includes the DN's homicide map and even a couple of Times blogs. The morning roundup of crime blotter news also links to the Times, putting reader service ahead of rivalry.
