This is the Sabbath. My first semester of law school is over, and I’m sitting on the couch with nothing to do. Amen.
I’ve definitely neglected to mention many things over the past month, but here’s a bit of overdue shameless self-promotion: I placed second in the American Academy of Religion’s contest for reporters at papers under 100,000 circ.
The judges praised Greenberg for his “meticulousness,” adding “the hallmark of this writer was the immense amount of reporting that went into the pieces”
In other words, I had the allowance and the obsessiveness to spend way too long on some of these stories. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I placed third in the same contest in 2008. Unfortunately, there’s not much hope for continuing the upward trend. At least I went out on a good note.
