#Hillman2014: Opinion & Analysis: Heather "Digby" Parton

Tonight, the Sidney Hillman Foundation will honor Heather “Digby” Parton with the 2014 Hillman Prize for Opinion & Analysis Journalism. Digby’s blog Hullabaloo has been a fixture in the progressive blogosphere for over a decade. Digby has eloquently opposed injustice and incompetence on issues ranging from the invasion of Iraq to the widening chasm between rich and poor in America. Whatever the topic, Digby approaches her work with a level head and a big heart. 

I will give the last word to Kathleen Geier of the Washington Monthly, “Since she’s the best daily political writer in America, an honor of this sort is the least we can do for her. Congrats to Digby and to the Hillman people for making such an awesome choice. Now and forever: What. Digby. Said!”
