The Watcher’s Council has announced its picks for the most outstanding posts of the preceding week. In both the Council and non-Council categories the approval of each of the winning posts is the largest I recall seeing since I’ve become a Council member, understandable under the circumstances. The winning Council post was Wolf Howling’s post, “Britain’s Prosecution of The Blogger Lionheart for Criticism of Islam”. Americans tend to be suspicious of treaties to begin with and I suspect that international legal venue shopping will reinforce that kneejerk response. Second place honors went to Soccer Dad’s post, Getting a “Clue”.
The winning non-Council post was Obsidian Wings’s “Andy Olmsted”, former Council member Andrew Olmsted’s final post before he was killed in Iraq. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. Second place honors went to Dr. Sanity’s “Orchestrated Circuses and Clowns.
The complete results are here.
