I actually saw the news of Eli's Pulitzer on the top of the Seattle Times site in a "Breaking News" thing. It touted theirs and his and even linked to the story, which surprised me.
It's gone now, but it was there for a good hour or so.
This is so well-deserved. You are truly amazing.
Whereas the Stranger has not seen fit to even mention the Times, which won its second Pulitzer in three years and ninth overall.
Congratulations Eli. You now have serious cred at salary negotiation time (you do negotiate salaries at The Stranger...don't you...?)
This has blown my mind. I am so, so happy for Eli and The Stranger!
*deep bow of respect*
Which reminds me: The locally owned Seattle Times won again, so let's give them their do.
I agree w/ @lopes #35 - I absolutely love listening to Eli Sanders on KUOW's Friday show. His fresh and wicked smart insights have immeasurably helped my understanding of politics, our world, and human beings in general. He's the real deal and a huge talent.
Of course I'm not going to read it again because just looking at the title made me cry. Congrats!
I live on the other side of the country and I read The Stranger every day. Thank you, Eli. You gave all of us a way to deepen our understanding of this tragedy while treating the victim and survivor with dignity and respect.
B) I loved that piece.
When I heard this mentioned on the news this morning (just that The Stranger had won a Pulitzer), I thought "Fantastic! Must be Eli, and that piece last year about The Bravest Woman in Seattle!"
:-D :-D :-D
All of your writing about the event and trial was exceptional. My very favorite was this Slog post, which I still recall as being the most moving depiction of the value of civilization that I've come across: http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archive…
