To celebrate, I’ve taken my personal favorite letters and letter writers from this year and narrowed them down to the best of the best.
It’s time for the First Annual Time Honored Joplin Globe Madness Awards-- the Peggies! Look to your left and let's look at the categories:
Best Frequent Letter Writer
Riley T. Jay -- He of the mixed up priorities.
Rita Crowell -- I seriously considered not nominating her; she has the unfair advantage in both the cuckoo-ness and the sheer volume of her letters.
Jim Keener --Token lefty, unless…
Steve Goebel --is one too. I think he is, but he never makes any goddamn sense so it’s hard to tell.
Dan Walters and Allen Shirley -- They’re being nominated together because they’re both interchangeable dittoheads.
