Congratulations, but you were way too modest in your self-congratulatory editorial April 16. Every taxpayer twice deprived of a referendum knows that the Star Tribune leads the world in self-serving editorials and op-eds in the categories of “Stadiums for Billionaires at the Taxpayers’ Expense” and “Desperate Attempts to Revive Moribund Downtown Minneapolis.”

How the Pulitzer people passed over your entries in these categories is beyond me, and I extend my heartfelt sympathies to the Editorial Board and sports staff.

At such time as the Pulitzer people wake up and give the Strib its just due, I have no doubt you will retire the trophies.

Willard B. Shapira, Roseville

This is no different than the Oscars in Hollywood — a bunch of far-left liberals giving other far-left liberals meaningless awards. Ho-hum.
