Excellence in reporting statistics

Sharon Begley of Newsweek received the Excellence in Statistical Reporting Award - Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science

I have to say, I didn't even know the ASA (a professional organization to which I belong and participate) gives out awards for reporting. With all the bad reporting involving statistics, it's refreshing to see a real effort for someone to try to help the public make sense of everything. Way to go Sharon!
