Congratulations, Lisa Falkenberg

Conservatives and Republicans around Houston don't always find Houston Chronicle columnist Lisa Falkenberg to be a friendly journalist. However, when push comes to shove she is respected by most of us. I know that last year she wrote a rather flattering piece about me and my effort to undermine the pay-to-play slates that are so dominant in Harris County politics.

Well, today Falkenberg got some well-deserved recognition.

Houston Chronicle Columnist Lisa Falkenberg has won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, the Pulitzer board announced Monday.

It was the first Pulitzer Prize awarded to the Chronicle in its 114-year history. The Chronicle has had finalists on several occasions, including Falkenberg in the same category last year. Editorial cartoonist Nick Anderson won a Pulitzer for his work at the Louisville Courier-Journal in 2005.

Falkenberg, 36, a sixth-generation Texan, joined the Chronicle in 2005 as a reporter in the Austin bureau. In 2007 she moved to Houston as a Metro columnist.

Falkenberg was awarded the prize for a series of columns she wrote about Alfred Dewayne Brown, who was condemned for the killing of a Houston police officer, a crime he very likely did not commit.

Well done, Lisa! My heartiest congratulations.

I have observed that costs for internet degree professionals tend to be an excellent value. For example a full 4-year college Degree in Communication in the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits with $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online offers a Bachelors of Business Administration with a total program requirement of 180 units and a tuition fee of $30,560. Online degree learning has made getting your college degree much simpler because you can earn your current degree in the comfort of your abode and when you finish working. Thanks for all other tips I've learned through your site.

I have come across that currently, more and more people are now being attracted to camcorders and the issue of digital photography. However, as a photographer, you have to first shell out so much period deciding which model of photographic camera to buy and also moving store to store just so you could buy the cheapest camera of the trademark you have decided to choose. But it will not end at this time there. You also have to take into account whether you should purchase a digital digicam extended warranty. Thanks alot : ) for the good suggestions I obtained from your site.
