Best Newspaper Writing 2003, the 25th anniversary of this prestigious series' publication, celebrates the winners of the ASNE Distinguished Writing Awards, including the Jesse Laventhol Prizes honoring deadline reporting, and featuring the Community Service Photojournalism Award on a companion CD-ROM. David Barham's clever, homespun editorials, a trademark of the "Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, combine a conversational style and unflinching, on-point criticism effectively to take on, among others, the head of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Catholic Church, proving that there are no sacred cows in the Razorback state. Andrew Malcolm of the "Los Angeles Times adds a whimsical voice to journalism's stodgiest pages with editorials that are equal parts satire, concise storytelling, and unbridled shtick. His way with words is never so evident as when he tackles the tough (difficult, grueling) task of writing an obituary for a thesaurus editor.
