Jay Price

Congratulations to Jay Price for winning the top prize in the Sigma Delta Chi Awards, a journalism contest. Price is the military reporter for the N&O and has been to Iraq twice. I met him once and thanked him for his fair and balanced reporting on the military situation in Iraq and elsewhere. His accounts were more accurate and informative than those in most of the major papers in the country, and his unwillingness to throw in the towel and call the whole situation in Iraq a failure is now being justified by the tremendous success we are seeing there and throughout the region.
