The Watcher’s Council has announced its picks for the most outstanding posts of the preceding week. The winning Council post was Bookworm Room’s post, “Cornelia, Mother of the Gracchi” (for which I voted). Second place honors went to Done With Mirrors for “After Iraq” (for which I also voted).
The winning non-Council post was Blackfive’s post, “COIN: the Gravity Well”. If you haven’t read it and you only read one post today, read this one. Probably the sharpest piece on fighting the “Long War” smart that I’ve read in a long time and, since I nominated this post, I’m very gratified by this result. Second place honors went to Laurie Kendrick’s post, “God Called”. This very fine post is a transcript of a telephone conversation with the Almighty.
The complete results are here.
