Tom Toles Receives Opinion Award From The Week


I know that Tom Toles joined columnist Peggy Noonan and blogger John Sides as the recipient of an Opinion Award from the publication The Week because they were nice enough to provide photos with Toles' appearance at the event. This is the eighth annual iteration of those awards, which are designed to celebrate opinion writing. Here is the publication's write-up on Toles when it named him a winner. I think Toles is one of the best cartoonists working and he's certainly one of a handful whose opinion I both take in regularly yet also actively seek out when a big issue erupts. Toles, syndicated widely as well as staff cartoonist at the Washington Post, was this year's Herblock Prize winner.

Finalists were Glenn McCoy, Steve Breen, Mike Luckovich and Rob Rogers.
