I initiated a pair of annual political awards in my years of editing FOSFAX. One was the Walter S. Duranty Memorial Awards for Creative Journalism, awarded for the journalist whose reporting is most fictional. I started doing this in the 1990s, so there have been a large number of worthy winners.
More recently I inaugurated the Arlen W. Specter Memorial Awards for Blatant Political Opportunism. The first winner was Charlie Crist in 2010, who would fit in well with Littlechap’s Opportunist Party from Stop the World, I Want to Get Off.
Given the increasing difficulties we have doing FOSFAX, though I do hope to complete the latest issue, I have decided to bring these awards to Stubborn Things, where I spend a lot more time now. So I’m throwing the field open for nominations to both awards for this year.
