PERSPECTIVE: A reporter was conducting an interview with the acclaimed author, E.L. Doctorow, after Mr. Doctorow had won yet another prestigious award, this time for his novel "Billy Bathgate" (1989). What do think of this award, asked the reporter. Doctorow pondered for a second and then replied: Well, I think of this one that way I think of all awards; I hate them, until I win them.
