The Council has voted on their selections and not only am I pleased that the posts which I nominated and for which I voted did very well I’m extremely pleased that Wolf Howling’s fine post won outright, saving me the embarrassment of casting a deciding vote which might have included my own post. I thank my fellow Council members for their votes and for their good judgment in preserving me from that chore.
Here are the results for this week. Two members were unable to vote this week but they were unaffected by the penalty. As is our custom I have omitted the posts for which no votes were cast.
