Writers, MBJ deserve accolades received this past weekend

June 27th, 2011

We couldn’t be happier this morning after bringing home top honors this past weekend from the Mississippi Press Association convention …

During the last couple of years, this group has battled as we have work to become a more aggressive and responsible newsroom. Those efforts have paid off and we feel we are on the right track.

In fact, as I was leaving the Beau Rivage headed to get a celebratory Sam Adams with my wife, I was stopped by a colleague, who congratulated the MBJ on its honors.

“Man, y’all have really gotten aggressive. … You make the journalism business look better,” he said.

I don’t know about all that, but it makes you feel good to hear it .

We aren’t where we want to be, but we are headed there, I replied to the man and thanked him.

Thanks for the hard work, gang!
