Hey all,

My brother won a Pulitzer for his work at The Wall Street Journal. He is the Bureau Chief of the Shanghai office and they won the award for their articles discussing China's growth and impacts on their environment. Before this gig he was the Bureau Chief for the Journal in South Korea. I don't get to see him much, but I sure am proud of him!

-Gman

That's terrific! Is your whole family this successful? I'm sure you're very proud. I'm curious what his article said about the impact of China's growth. Congratulations to your brother!

Wow! Not many can make that brag!
(I can say, "My brother did sound for the Butthole Surfers on tour." It doesn't have quite the same ring as "My brother just won the Pulitzer Prize," nor did my parents get as big a kick announcing it to their friends.)

Congrats to you and your family, GMAN!

Congratulations GMAN! Nice to be able to be super proud of a family member and share it! Speaking of sharing got a link to the article or the Pulitzer Prize article?

Well, hell... I'd be proud! Pulitzer, phooey. Buttholes!

GMan, kidding. That's beyond cool. I can't even imagine. That's terrific.
