Sorry about that, Dave. :-)

Dan Anderson's work has always been outstanding. He's tough competition to 
beat for sure. Though his early stuff seemed to be more oriented towards 
fashion and illustration rather than news. He could have made a lot more 
money as a commercial photographer. At least when I was logging his POY 
entries in for POY back in '86 and '87, Was great to see such a powerful 
photo essay that really gets to the heart of what this job is about.

I wondered if he was using a Leica for that assignment. The light was so 
bad, can't imagine using anything else.

Pulitzer's are going to be announced Monday? Oh boy, we have an entry in 
too. Though nobody has told us we're finalists, so I guess that means we've 
lost already. :-)
