Watcher's Council's First Nominations Of The New Year

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.

If you would like to participate in the Council's activites, while there is no opening on the council at the moment, we invite you take part by submitting your own best post of the week through "link whorage." You can find out how at the Watcher's site.

This week's nominations are on a wide array of topics - several on aspects of jihadism, one on the fall from grace of San Francisco, one on the race card, and much more. On the non-council side, the TSA's outrageous arrest of Michael Yon makes several appearances. As an aside, one of the non-council submissions is Neo-Neocon's review of Avatar. Gerard Van der Luen pulled out one of the hundred or so comments to Neo's post and memorialized it in a post of its own that makes a fascinating read. You will find it here.
