Pulitzer Awards: Pearls Before Breakfast

I know I'm a little behind with this bit of news (having been awash in a sea of strange occurrences last week left me little time for online reading) but I was glad to see that a Pulitzer was awarded to the Washington Post for an article that I read, enjoyed, and blogged about (here and here) last year.

From the Pulitzer website:
For a distinguished example of feature writing giving prime consideration to quality of writing, originality and concision, in print or in print and online, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

Awarded to Gene Weingarten of The Washington Post for his chronicling of a world-class violinist who, as an experiment, played beautiful music in a subway station filled with unheeding commuters.

I think it was a well-deserved prize. If you never read the article, be sure and do so - it's fully worth your time!
