I'm staying a farmhouse in the middle of England for a family reunion and, as luck would have it, it's the wettest June in recorded British history, with widespread flooding and unseasonable cold. A nearby town is underwater and they're helicoptering people off roofs. Our tennis is really suffering.
If you know anything about the Loeb you'll know why I'm thrilled:
"Celebrating their 50th anniversary, the Loeb Awards are the highest honors in business journalism. They were established in 1957 by Gerald Loeb, a founding partner of E.F. Hutton, to encourage quality reporting in the areas of business, finance and the economy in order to inform and protect private investors and the general public. Presented by UCLA Anderson School of Management since 1973, the awards recognize writers, editors and producers of both print and broadcast media for the significant contributions they make in this field."
