Watcher Winners: Yon Honored
The Watcher's Council apparently agrees with me, because his post, Bless the Beasts and Children, dominated this week's non-Council blog entries, earning 4 1/3 points, outpacing #2, Small War Journal's Understanding Current Operations in Iraq by 2 1/3 points. SMJ may have done a better job of explaining current Iraq policy, but Yon has heart.
There were three non-Council entries this week that deserve an honorable mention:
- Classical Values' But Who Are They?, about the government drones who forcefully, quietly rule our lives
- Canker's Not Forgetting the Basilisk, a classical tale that just might have something to do with Islamism
- Searching for Bright Light's The Parallel Universe of the New York Times' "Style" Section, a voyeuristic romp through exactly what the title says.
Then three of my Council co-members joined me (Quote of the Day: Islamophobia Edition) in second place:
- Done with Mirrors' With Snark, which is going to make it hard for me to be snarky ... for a while anyway
- Bookworm Room's Condescension As Bigotry, which got my second place vote
- Education Wonks' This I Believe. The Wonks' usually limit their comments to a few lines of pithiness about some horrifying education story or another, but this week we got an essay, and I think everyone liked it.
