Watcher's Council Results & An Opening

Each week, the Watcher's Council holds a contest for best post. The Council members submit a post they have written and one post by someone outside the Council for consideration. The Watcher tallies the votes and announces the winners each Friday.

There is an opening on the Council. If you would care to submit your blog for consideration, please visit the Watcher's site. You will find instructions on the right side bar for applying to join the Council.

On to the results. This week's winners were:

Coming in first place in a runaway was Bookworm Room thought provoking post (does she do any other kind?), Does Brown v. Board of Education constitute the Supreme Court’s one free pass? Tie for second place were two other fine posts, Right Truth's Home grown terrorism and the media and The Provacateur's Deconstructing The Criminal Enterprise ACORN.

In the Non-Council category, the winner was British columnist Melanie Phillips with A Wary Encounter. Coming in second place was Der Spiegel's Hitler’s European Holocaust Helpers.

You can find the full results of the voting at the Watcher's site and read his take on the winners.
