Economy Faltering, World In Peril, Important Obama Gray Hair Article Published

Helene Cooper pitched, researched and wrote - on the 75th anniversary of Franklin Roosevelt's vital inaugural address - a 600-word article about how Obama's hair is going gray.

Fortunately, this kept her away from the less crucial stories, like the Federal Reserve predicting a sustained and widespread recession, or the trillion dollars in unfunded pension liability or Pakistan's slide into a Somali-style failed state. That stuff won't get you a Pulitzer. Quotes from Walt Frazier saying “No play for Mr. Gray" and recommending a dye job, that's the stuff of champions. Eyes on the prize.

...And WaPo. On the same day. Good Lord.
