    Congratulations Radley.

    If your story about corruption and cronyism in Mississippi's criminal justice system walked away with an HM, then the first prize must have gone to a story impacting the lives of millions of people in a fundamental way.

    I haven't read the Siklos piece but to be fair, immensely readable means someone may have enjoyed it. As we all know, no one enjoys reading Balko. People just don't like nut punches.
