The 2010 Pulitzer Prize has been awarded to Kathleen Parker of The Washington Post for her perceptive, often witty columns on an array of political and moral issues, gracefully sharing the experiences and values that lead her to unpredictable conclusions.
A MAP author search turns up 121 articles by her since 1998. http://www.mapinc.org/author/Kathleen+Parker
It would be hard to think of a well known conservative columnist who supports legalizing marijuana as strongly.
Asking your local larger newspapers to carry Kathleen Parker’s columns makes much sense in my opinion. Tell the newspapers that you wish to read the columns of a Pulitzer columnist. The prize is a big deal.
