Detroit can never get 100% good news. Even if that good news is a Pulitzer Prize!

Free Press wins Pulitzer for coverage of mayoral scandal

Lead:

The Free Press won its ninth Pulitzer Prize today for its coverage of the text message scandal that led to the resignation and jailing of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Journalism’s highest award, the Pulitzer for the Free Press was announced this afternoon by Columbia University in New York, which awards the annual prizes.

Now if the D could earn more awards like this and fewer like the one the they won it for, the ghost town of a city would be looking like a Boomtown sooner rather than later.
