Watcher's Winners

I was a bit out of synch with other members of the Watcher's Council this week, but certainly can't complain about the winners, which are all well worth reading.

Topping the charts was Right Wing Nuthouse's diary of his days at YearlyKos, My Excellent Adventure At Yearlykos. You've probably read a bunch of these by now, but if you haven't read this one, you're missing some fun.

Done with Mirror's interesting analysis of the "bomb Mecca" question, Tancredo and Tonic, came in second.

Over on the non-Council side, Michael Yon's Bread and a Circus, Part II of II came in first. Of course. This was a different piece for Yon, covering a battle of will and words, not bullets and bombs -- and as always with Yon, the reader comes away with an achingly strong admiration for our troops.

Trailing Yon was a tie for second, a post on the religion blog of WaPo, My View of Islam (it wasn't pretty) and Lone Star Times' A Bridge Too Far.

You may recall I mentioned Logosphilia's Lexicon. I was happy to see that someone or someones also found it entry-worthy; it got either two second-place votes or one first-place vote.
