Kewl!

I just got the word from my editor at the newspaper that my weekly column won first place in its division (Best serious column in a non-daily newspaper) from the North Carolina Press Association.
Excellent!

"Serious" column? Come on - you're making that up...

Congrats:)

Jeff: I know, I know. I'm as baffled by it as you. Especially since two years ago I placed third in the category of humor columns, and I haven't changed that much.

Oops, typos aside, I'm proud to know you, Dusty. When you coming up for a drink?

But serious column? Man, the world's sense of humor just keeps getting thinner and thinner. Soon, people will laugh at nothing but fart jokes and people getting hit in the crotch.

Maybe poon.

Well-deserved award.

You go, Dusty! Do you at least get a plaque to hang on your wall (or use as a trivet)? Seriously, congrats!
