it's just me and my adversarial relationship with the Post

Be that as it may...
A graduate of Mizzou's school of journalism
), Maples came to the Post
in late 2006 after building a strong résumé in investigative reporting at the Dallas Morning News
. While there she was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize for international reporting in 1994
for a series on violence against women.
This year the Post was a Pulitzer finalist in the Breaking News category
for its coverage of the 2008 shootings at Kirkwood City Hall
; the judges cited the Post
news team's "creative and aggressive coverage, both online and in print, of a city
hall shooting that left six people dead, displaying an exemplary blend
of speed and rigor in its reporting."
Footnote: The Post
earlier this year laid off Todd Smith, the reporter who took a bullet
during the Kirkwood shooting spree.
