Can the New York Times do what the Star-Ledger already did?

The Star-Ledger won a Pulitzer Prize in 2005 for its coverage of the resignation of New Jersey Governor James E. McGreevey. That puts some pressure on The New York Times to win a Pulitzer for their rather oustanding coverage of the events that led to the end of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer’s political career.

And once again, congratulations to the Star-Ledger team of Pulitzer Prize winners:
