Where's Balko's Pulitzer?

I'm pretty sure there isn't a Pulitzer Prize category for investigative blogging and, for that matter, that real journalist Radley Balko (and I say "real journalist" in the nicest possible way here) probably hasn't hit the radar yet of whoever decides those things. But if Balko's continued coverage at The Agitator and Reason of the Cory Maye travesty and the many other now almost weekly occurrences of some jackbooted police SWAT thugs busting in the wrong address and maiming, killing or otherwise brutalizing entirely innocent people isn't worthy of a Pulitzer, I'll be damned if I can think of what is.
