    Pulitzers Announced; ‘Times’ Only Wins OneThe Pulitzer Prizes were announced about a half-hour ago, and let’s put it this way: It’s a good day for Hassan Elmasry. The Times snagged only one award this year, in the Feature Writing category. That’s the same total as the Daily News and Newsday — and for that matter, the Oregonian, the Miami Herald, the Los Angeles Times — which all also won one prize, but without the pesky dual-class ownership that Elmasry so dislikes and we’d all like to argue protects the paper’s superior journalism. Then again, it was a year without any big winners, and the only paper to win two prizes — the Wall Street Journal, with Public Service and International Reporting — is a dual-class paper, too.
