Winning the Devroy Fellowship was sort of like being asked to tour with The Beatles. Every single reporter and editor at The Washington Post was like a rock star to me. I sat next to Howard Kurtz in the newsroom. I ate in the lunchroom with David Broder. I talked shop with Len Downie. To call it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity doesn't go far enough - most journalists will live their whole lives and never get the chance to be part of one of the world's great news organizations, if only for a month.
