BREAKING NEWS REPORTING
Staff of The Times-Picayune, New Orleans, La.
Keith can now claim a share in two Pulitzers. He and the rest of that staff deserve them both for their work and dedication after Hurricane Katrina. Just watching my brother's life change in the aftermath of that storm has been a heck of an experience.
Keith has moved on to become a reporter for the San Diego Union-Tribune, now a member of a staff that also won a Pulizter today.
I called to congratulate him just now and this is a bittersweet moment for him. He's thrilled about the awards but sad that he isn't there to celebrate with the people he bonded so closely to as they lived through the moments of that storm and the aftermath.
So grab some champagne, Keith, and celebrate. You guys worked hard for this
