Politico’s Roger Simon Wins Prestigious Award

Politico Chief Political Columnist Roger Simon has won first place in the 2013 National Headline Awards in the print division for “a special or feature column on one subject by one individual.”

Simon’s winning columns involve gun control and involve the Sandy Hook, Columbine and Aurora shootings.

“I am especially grateful for this award because the politics of gun control is a subject I have cared about for a long time,” Simon said in a release dispatched by Politico today. “It’s an issue that’s now more important than ever in America, and I’m honored to have my columns be a part of the vital conversation the country is having right now.”

Simon’s columns in this entry are: “Cowardly Pols Killers’ Top Allies,” “Innocent Victims Too Numerous to Recall” and “Post-Massacre, We’re Still Waiting for ‘the Good Guys.’”
