    The easiest decision the board had.

    I think that makes her the youngest Pulitzer winner ever.

    Our editor, David Newhouse, toasts Sara after the announcement.


    I'm very happy for her and the other writers and editors involved in that stunning body of work.

    How is she still there?

    There's a difference in being embarrassed when being singled out in front of your peers and not caring.

    My, that could be taken several ways.

    Of course, you probably only mean it one way.

    A friend, who got his ass kicked on this story, told me, "I'd like to see how she does when the scandal happens some place other than her alma mater."

    I say that's bullshit. It's all about how you react when the news is breaking and it's not like this was the only paper in the country chasing this story. Even when the huge papers descended upon Penn State, she still kicked all of their asses.

    She did an amazing job. I'm just curious where her next job will be.

    She's a great example that "right place, right time" is only going to get you so far. There are a million other reporters -- myself included -- who wouldn't have owned this story and, as so often happens, the news-breaking would have been ceded to the big guns when they descended. (Hello, Orlando Sentinel.)

    But she dominated it start to finish.

    EDIT: Mizzou beat me to it, so, ditto.

    I think you're reading too much into it, Creosote.

    To me there's a difference between this -- an award that comes after the reporting and didn't drive it -- and the kinds of "project journalism" that is done with the specific goal of winning awards. The latter is the kind of thing David Simon railed against.
