Was awarded Best News Photograph from the Utah Press Association… Here’s the pic:

So that’s cool. .:. Is it weird that a contest would have its categories sponsored by corporations and even a news organization? Seems weird to me. Here are some of them:

Best Breaking News Story sponsored by Parr Brown Gee & Loveless Best News Coverage sponsored by the Deseret News Best News Series sponsored by Smith’s Food & Drug Best Feature or Community Lifestyle Page sponsored by Zions Bank

Inside joke while we waited for details on the results: I wonder if coverage of the Richard Burwash fiasco placed in the Best News Coverage sponsored by the Deseret News category. .:. Started Finished The Heart and the Fist: The education of a humanitarian, the making of a Navy SEAL. Also finished a couple novels about the end of the world. In On the Beach, a radioactive dust makes its way south from the northern hemisphere killing all life on the planet, and people in Australia await the end of humanity. Obviously there’s no good news, no happy ending. Two lines I liked:

I’m glad we haven’t got newspapers now,” she said. “It’s been much nicer without them.”


There’s no sense in giving orders that you know won’t be obeyed.

In Remnant everyone vanishes from the earth except for two women who are left to figure it out. After I finished the book I went to the author’s website, where the words Lesbian Fiction lead the page. I never would have guessed. By the way, I rate everything I read and watch on the scoreboard.


BWJones: Congratulations on that image. Its one of my all time favorites of yours as an amazingly intimate, yet complex image that speaks to the history of the moment.
