2008 March 6: “From the steps of the Supreme Court to the White House press room, from global trading exchanges to the snowy reaches of Alaska — over the last week, you could hear the creak of history as it began to pivot in a half-dozen locales.

It is the beginning of an article in New York Times by Timothy Egan, who worked for 18 years as a writer for The New York Times. In 2006, Mr. Egan won the National Book Award for his history of people who lived through the Dust Bowl, and in 2001 he won the Pulitzer Prize as part of a team of reporters who wrote the series How Race Is Lived in America.
