••• Huge Congratulations To One of Ours! •••
One of ours is up for a very prestigious literary award!
We can’t reveal who it is, or what award, but it’s big, big, BIG, and you’ve heard of it!
I can tell you that the category of the potential award is related ( <== key word) to political commentary — the main (but not only) focus of our blog. What does this little tidbit mean? Simple: The only possible conclusion is:
What you get here is the very finest commentary available in the country today! As recognized by one of the most highly respected literary organizations in the world.
We’re thrilled for our colleague and dear friend, and we hope he/she wins it! At the same time, if he/she does win it, then he/she will have to limit his/her time with us for some significant amount of time.
We think it’s an okay sacrifice to make, but we’ll surely miss him/her during that time! He’s/She’s a significant contributor to our content!
Again, huge congratulations to one of the extremely intelligent and capable denizens in the stable of writers/analysts/commentators who make up our small, but increasingly influential think tank, and… best of luck!
A personal note: the potential honoree is a good friend of mine, and I can tell you that he/she deserved the award long, long ago… and in repeated fashion. If he/she doesn’t receive the award, then it will be because of some irrelevant — and stupid — externality, beyond the control of my friend. (Not that I’m at all biased, of course!)
