We Have the Ability
I felt compelled to interrupt part three of the four-part series I am doing on driver distraction with some breaking news this week. I wanted to let you all know that I have won a Pulitzer Prize for the aforementioned series on driver distraction—even though it is not yet finished.
Though I submitted my application to the judges even before I wrote the first entry, the Pulitzer committee has decided to award me with their highest honor based solely upon my intent to write a great and courageous series of articles. I will be certain to write all about the award ceremony in Oslo in a few months so you all can share in this amazing success that I have earned in such a short period of time. Oh wait, it’s not Oslo, that’s that other guy and a different award. Well, stay tuned on all this, and let me return you to part three of what is now an award-winning series on driver distraction.
I remember as though it were yesterday, even though it surely was over 45 years ago, that I was tucked under the covers of my bed, my flashlight beaming light over the words of the current Popular Mechanics magazine. I can’t, to this day, be certain why I was hiding under the covers to read this particular magazine, but it might have been because there were other magazines I read in this manner in an effort to protect my sister from them. I was, after all, the good brother.
