the duponts

Two weeks ago, I was part of a team that won a DuPont Award for NPR for candid conversations with people who live in York, Pa., about race and the 2008 election. Michele Norris and Steve Inskeep accepted it in the dome in the journalism school at Columbia University in New York — and afterward Michele came up to me to thank me for my part getting it on the Web. She said the project is being taught in 12 universities in the U.S. — and she’s happy that it’s archived (the display got a bit messed up with our redesign in August, but we’re working on it). I look up to Michele — her intelligence, charisma and most importantly how she treats people — so I was flattered and proud that she thanked me personally. Two years ago, I would have never guessed I’d be in this position at NPR. And I’m so happy.

    Damn. I took a quick look at the headline and I thought it said, “The Donuts.”
    Got all excited.
    Well, congrats on the award, too.
