Belated Congratulations To Steve Sack On His Pulitzer Win
Looking back with some horror this weekend, I noticed this site's initial post about Steve Sack of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune winning the 2013 Pulitzer in Editorial Cartooning
was one of a few that did not scroll out last week due to me not being all that great at my job. I am deeply sorry not to report that in a timely fashion and also not to be one of the first comics-related sites to congratulate the veteran Sack. Here
's how it went down in the newsroom; that must be a wonderful moment.

slideshow. All of the Pulitzer organizations own links to Sack can be found here
Clay Bennett (Chattanooga Times Free Press
) and Jeff Darcy (Cleveland Plain Dealer
) were this year's finalists
. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the first time I recall seeing Darcy receive major recognition like that.
Steve Sack has been at his current publication since 1981, which might at this point be a greater achievement, at least statistically, than winning any award out there. He took his current position after two years in Fort Wayne at the Journal-Gazette
. Sack was a finalist for the Pulitzer in 2004, and is represented by the Cagle syndicate. He is a past winner of a National Headliner award and a Berryman.
