    I find Jones' fawning and shameless campaigning for Heinz... a great, great thing.

    As one who idolized Red Smith, I have to say W.C. Heinz epitomizes everything the namesake of this award felt about the written word.

    499 views, 26 responses? WTF?

    Do you read, do you write? Have you ever done either? Do you want to, or think you can, or have?

    Get to the library and then get on board.

    Heinz is seminal.
  5. Man, I'm such a follower... :)

    Mary Garber was my "rooting interest" for a long time, until she finally received recognition last year.

    Now? I can't think of anyone I'd rather hitch my Red Smith wagon to more than Heinz.

    With the recent storyline of Barbaro, honoring W.C. couldn't have possibly been more apropos. Too bad the honoree was announced in April.

    Sign me up.

    I'm kind of stunned he hasn't won before. I'm with it.

    I've read Death of a Racehorse maybe 200 times...never once without tears. Posted it here several times, always thrilled when someone says they had never read it before.

    As Fenian once posted, Bill Heinz is a national treasure. He should be honored as such.
