Pulitzer Prize: Editorial Writing

I don't miss Ron Meador's columns on the environment (MinnPost). If his pieces are not the best in the state, they rank right up there. Today Meador starts by by saying that he writes "in appreciation, admiration and even a little awe of Art Cullen of Storm Lake, Iowa, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in editorial writing."

The subject of these columns has been fertilizer-laden run-off from Big Ag and buffer strips.

After reading Meador's column I find myself in awe of Mr. Cullen and am glad to know about his work. You may read the essay here. I hope you will.

For a British take see here.
