Cheat-Seeking Missles

Wednesday Reading

I wish I could just sit back today and read this stuff, but I'm going to San Francisco to present a client case to the California Coastal Commission's Executive Director so I'm a ball of nerves without much spare time. But the Watcher's Council has done another stellar job this week of compiling some of the most compelling reading in the blogosphere.

My nominations were The Most Ridiculous Story of the Year? (2), about a howlingly stupid analysis of Middle East foreign policy options, and for non-Council entry, The Brussels Journal's Secularist Europe Silences Pro-Lifers and Creationists.

Here's the full list; winners will be posted here either late, late Thursday or first thing Friday.
