Wonder how he found out about the story? Did someone tip him off?

Dang! Second in and the best quip already taken.

I hope that award comes with a hefty cash prize! OUCH!

Painful, yes, but when he goes back in a few years for the bar mitzvah... such presents!

*snork* at Lairbo

Pen!s Gourds WBAGNF something very painful.

Pfftt. I heard that Gene Weingarten did the same thing to secure his second Pulitzer Prize.

He got the Pullitsir Prize. Go Free West young man.

No "Penis Mightier Than The" jokes?

LM, did you say " Pull it, Sir " ?

Problem is he fell out of contention for best journalistic probe.

Was it abuse or a bris?

Reporter on way to interview: "Hmm.. notebook, pen, tape recorder, camera, foreskin."

Whoa, too much passion for journalism. Will do anything for a scoop. What do you guess he'd do next for another scoop?
