Celebrate the News


The Pulitzer winners were announced today. Despite my longstanding cynicism toward the prizes -- and toward alternative weeklies, for that matter, most of which are about as "alternative" as the Washington Post Style section -- I'll admit I felt a touch of pleasure on learning that an alt-weekly managed to take the investigative reporting award.

Onward to more important trophies. The NCAA finals start in less than half an hour. Go Heels.
