    I’ve never heard of a Maggie Award but the committee must be smart if they’re giving you this award.

    Amongst all of the stories you’ve covered (broken), the Steve Hayne story is only rivaled by your coverage of the use of SWAT raids and your ongoing work in clearing Corey Maye.

    From some stoner who only started reading because I liked what you said about pot laws, a well deserved congratulations.

    Congratulations Radley!

    I hope this raises the profile of your work and gets more people to take notice.

    Maggie’s drawers (red flags) are what we got at the rifle range when we missed the entire target.

    Congratulations for the recognition of your on target journalism.

    Congrats, Radley. Like what I would guess to be the majority of your readers, I was completely naive to that type of thing until I started reading your site. Thanks for what you do.

    Congratulations, Radley. I love to see your hard work get recognized– especially on important stories like that one that the MSM can’t be bothered to cover (unless of course, like CNN, they just decide to steal it from you).

    The number of stories you’ve covered tirelessly and brought to the attention of the public, you should be winning multiple awards every year.

    Congratulations. You’ve more than earned it.

    Well done sir. CNN is stealing from one of the finest investigative journalists in the country ;)

    When Dave Krueger offers a sarcasm-free comment, you know you’ve done a good job. ;-) Congrats, Radley!

    I won’t add another congratulations, but I will say thank you for writing articles like that in the first place – it’s something sorely lacking in most media venues these days.

    Seconded and thirded all around — congratulations, and thanks kindly for doing work that means so much to all of us.

    The Maggie Awards, known as the “Oscars” of the periodicals, are recognition of excellence to deserving individuals and companies whose work is deemed “The Best in the West” in a wide variety of publishing categories.

    Congratulations, Radley…and may you continue to be blessed…as you shed light on the abuses…and champion the cause for JUSTICE.

    All the regular Balkonians (thanks Cavanaugh ) already know you are great, and now it looks like everyone else is catching on. Congrats on the award. You deserve it.
