Burnie Thompson's OC Weekly article "The Making of a Free Speech Activist" (Feb. 2, 2001) was named a runner-up in the national Felix Morley Journalism Competition. The judges of this libertarian competition lauded Thompson's "use of on-the-spot reporting to personalize the story of an entrepreneur whose liberty was repeatedly threatened and violated by his local government."
