The Association of Alternative Newsweeklies (AAN) has announced the finalists in this year’s AltWeekly Awards. (No, I’m not one of the finalists, but I’m proud to say that I was one of the judges … in the political columnist category.)
The AAN has also announced that MSNBC news anchor Keith Olbermann is the winner of its first annual Molly Ivins Award. In accepting the honor, Olbermann said, “I’m utterly honored, largely because I’d still like to be Molly Ivins when I grow up.”
Congratulations to all the finalists and to the wonderful Keith Olbermann. What a great choice! I’m betting that the late, great Molly Ivins would approve.
