We Stand Corrected. Again. SoCal Gets Even Closer to a Pulitzer

29387321.jpgWe’ve been gently ripping our local reporters for not even coming close to nabbing a Pulitzer this year — only to be schooled. Repeatedly.

Now Veronique de Turenne writes to remind us that Tom Curwen we do have some finalists in our midsts:

I’m only sending this note because Tom Curwen is such a great guy — he was a finalist for the features Pulitzer. (And to be fair, I have to also point out the LAT photo staff were runners-up for the fire pix) But this email is really about Tom and that great story about the grizzly attack.

Why do we have the feeling that the next e-mail we get on the topic, L.A. will have won a Pulitzer after all? Our apologies, Tom.
