In today's print newspaper of the Las Vegas Sun and the LVRJ, they are patting themselves on the back for winning the best journalism awards for the year in the State of Nevada. Considering there are only about 6 daily newspapers and a very small handful of weekly newspapers in the State, to win an award is not that big of deal. It's not like you are winning a Pulitzer prize or anything close to it. It's more like winning a beauty contest with 6 contestants. Sure, you won, but it's not like you won the Miss America contest. More like you won the the Miss Round Mountain, NV. Beauty Contest. Nice, but it means so little in the scheme of things. http://www.lvrj.com/news/review-journal-wins-for-general-excellence-103230409.html
