Watcher's Council Business

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.

Before announcing this weeks nominations, I need to note last week's winners. The winner in the Council category was JoshuaPundit for his post, A Mosque At Ground Zero. The winner in the Non-Council category was Iowahawk's Undocumented Imam’s Refusal to Perform Interracial Gay Handicapped Wedding Leads to Charges of Racism. You can find the full results of the voting here.

As always, this week's nominations present an eclectic mix of thought-provoking reading.

Do enjoy them all:
