Dumped NYT Scribe Wins $250K

So what if conservative commentator William Kristol was let go by The New York Times? Why should that disqualify him from winning an award—with a $250,000 stipend—for making an "outstanding" impact in his field? Kristol—an author, Fox News pundit, founding editor of The Weekly Standard, and former aide to Dan Quayle—was chosen for his affect on "development of public policy from national and international perspectives" by the Milwaukee-based group. The awards will be presented in June.
