Watcher's Council Business - Results & Nominations

I have been derelict in my duties this week, failing to post the results of the last round of voting as well as the current nominations. The winner of last week's contest for best post was Joshua Pundit with just a must-read essay, Land For Peace, American Style. It puts into perspective the situation of Israel by comparing it to a hypothetical with our own southwestern states that La Raza seeks to break off into a seperate country. Among the non-Council submissions, the winner was one of my favorite blogs, Seraphic Secret. His post The New-Old War Against the Jews discusses how the canard of anti-zionism is nothing more than a transparent attempt to dress up anti-semitism that has been around for millenia. You can find the full result of the voting at the Watcher's site. Now for this week's nominations.

Each week, the members of the Watcher's Council nominate one of their own posts and a second from outside the Council for consideration by other council members in a contest for best post. The Watcher publishes the results each Friday morning.

Terry Trippany plays the role of Watcher of Weasels. Do visit the Watcher's Site for his theme of the week. This week, its about a brewing scandal of huge proportions - Dealergate.

Thanks so much for the kind words. As I've said several times, my daily dose of WH is, along with my very strong coffee, a necessity. Keep up the fine work.

The days seem to go by so quickly, so little time and so much of importance going on.

Well GW, I was banned at LGF today - evidently.

I don't know whether to be honored or dismayed.

I have appreciated your sage counsel over the blogging years - do you have any thoughts?

Cheers - Dinah

Don't worry about it. Visit other places! There are so addition to WH, these are some I like:

Gates of Vienna was banned and condemned by LGF about 1-2 years ago. They don't ban. Neither does Flopping Aces. (unless you troll, which you don't. Disagreement definitely allowed)
