U-T's Steve Breen Wins Cartooning's Pulitzer
Congratulations to STEVE BREEN, who has just won his second Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning.
The San Diego Union-Tribune cartoonist won his first Pulitzer in 1998, while at the Asbury Park Press.
(All three, I should note, are always generous with their time and insights. Comic Riffs featured an interview with Breen last year as he discussed the challenges of caricaturing then-candidate Obama. 'Riffs spoke with Thompson several weeks ago about social networking. And Wuerker has shared his thoughts with us about "What He'll Miss About Bush," as well as his prediction last year as to "Who Will Win the White House.")
Hearty huzzahs to all three. In a brutal year for cartoonists, it's welcome news, indeed.
In addition, congratulations to my Post colleague EUGENE ROBINSON, who won a Pulitzer for commentary. (Gene, too, is always generous with his time, as well as with his reactions to cartoons that I peskily wave in front of him, seeking his sharp-witted retorts.)
