The past two weeks have been plenty good for Carl Monday. Not only was he a charter member of our own Hall of Fame, but he also won ... an Emmy!
Yes, Carl won his, by our count, 31st regional Emmy last week, and it was a special one: It appeared not to be for any individual story but instead for "journalistic enterprise." This catch-all phrase allows him to earn his Emmy for creating his own little niche, which we respect and absolutely support. We feel bad for those who must lose to Carl seemingly every year; what's it gonna take to beat that guy?
So, congratulations, Carl. We imagine you constantly checking on your 31 Emmys to make sure none of them have tried to have sex with each other.
