A Pox on All Their Houses

Look, I've staged awards shows, so I know what I'm talking about here: Awards in the arts are invariably political, relative, conditional, blinkered, and by their nature inherently unfair. So why is everyone so upset about how David Lindsay-Abaire's empty Rabbit Hole got the Pulitzer? Makes good copy, but please--righteous indignation is a little off the mark. (And to make myself clear, it's not like I'd turn down an award myself.)
