Hank Williams Wins Pulitzer Prize

That’s all I take away from this. Other than the fact that I lost out on the Music prize once again. I guess my Concerto in B-minor for Tissue Paper and Asthmatic Wheeze failed to wow ‘em. Again.

The New York Times won for National Reporting for its incisive reporting on the dangers of cell phones. What — no prize for the delightful Highlights and its decades’ long crusade against jaywalking?

And Kathleen Parker won for Commentary. You just can’t bash the oogedy-boogedy people enough. Especially when you’re striving for that “unpredictable conclusion.”
