Paul Greenberg

Pulitzer Prize-winning Paul Greenberg, one of the most respected and honored commentators in America, is the editorial page editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette


An exceptional craftsman, he gives readers an aesthetic as well as political experience and has evoked comparisons to H.L. Mencken and William Allen White. A thoughtful essayist who can also be a devastating critic, Greenberg describes himself as "an ideologically unreliable conservative."

Greenberg won the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing and was a Pulitzer finalist in 1978 and 1986. Among his many other honors are the 1988 William Allen White Award, the 1988 Arkansas Associated Press Editorial Writing Award, the 1987 H.L. Mencken Award, the 1983 University of Missouri School of Journalism Medal of Honor, the American Society of Newspaper Editors' 1981 Distinguished Writing Award for Commentary, and the 1964 Grenville Clark Editorial Award. He also won two Walker Stone Awards, in 1985 and 1986.

Greenberg has been on the board of the National Conference of Editorial Writers and served as a Pulitzer jurist in 1984 and 1985. He is the author of the critically acclaimed "Resonant Lives: 50 Figures of Consequence" and "Entirely Personal."

Let's hope all these things come true in 2015

Now it's back to our array of nightmares

Obedience to the unenforceable is a lost trait

"Ordinary" Guy Could Win this Thing

Ordinary? Not these brave souls

Politispeak: A Language Like No Other

Some folks prefer to bury the past

These two icons possessed a vanishing trait

Too many of us won’t reflect on fateful day

Rekindled memories of a friend

Repression remains a constant in Russia

Shinseki is a scapegoat for a failed system

There's little joy in Cubicle Land

Vague promise fraught with peril

We're all to familiar with ths script

We're reversing key foreign policy gains

We've lost words from a genteel era

What's with this Southern respectability?

When one vogue-word dies, another lurks

Why Invent Religion-State Conflicts?

You must see through the politics
