Is this Dean's year?
Pulitzer Prizes will be handed out Monday. The New York Times looks dominant and the Washington Post's series on Walter Reed Army Medical Center has to be the favorite to win the coveted public service prize.
MediaNews flagship The Denver Post is a finalist in the investigative category, although there's some controversy surrounding the submission.
If the paper wins, will Dean Singleton rethink the gut-and-consolidate strategy he has implemented at his other papers? After all, even he will have to see that his long-time dream will have come true only through a real investment in journalism, and the Post is the only paper he's ever really invested in.
