Yesterday I found out that our local paper, and my former employer, won a Pulitzer Prize. Mary Chind won for her incredible photograph of a rescue on the Des Moines River.
I don’t think anyone who works there would deny that the last year has been tough on journalists. Really tough. Something like this reminds you that are still good at what you do, and that the public needs it, no matter how many budgets are cut.
If you get a chance, you should also read this incredible article (another winner) from the Washington Post.
