Tracy, do you have your Pulitzer Prize around your neck, and can I try it on?
TL: The Pulitzer Prize does not come in medallion form.
You cant make requests of what form you want it in?
TL: I think the Pulitzer Prize, the prize itself refers to the check. I think that is the Pulitzer Prize.
MM: You get a check?
TL: You do.
MM: Wow! I didnt know that.
TL: Its all right. [Laughs] Its not like a MacArthur grant.
So you have the check framed around your neck.
TL: [Laughs] No, I cashed the check! I cashed the check and bought the jewelry I wear around my neck.
