I was awarded 7th place in the Richmond Times-Dispatch 2011 Correspondent of the Day

out of, obviously, 365.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch is notoriously conservative and the President and Publisher of the Times-Dispatch admitted so at the event.

I talked to my brother (who has direct opposite political viewpoints) about this yesterday and he said, "YOU aren't going to win anything from the Times-Dispatch."

90 minutes of speeches by the Op-Ed Editor and the staff, some Q&A, and then the "awards".
In the Q&A I asked how many Letters are submitted on a daily basis - about 100 "50 of which are readable"

The winner was an 11 year old who didn't like the new Amtrak rules setting the riding-alone age at 13
The runner-up was a soldier in Afghanistan lamenting not treating his mother better in a letter published on Mother's Day.
Good letters. The read the top 4.
