It was an interesting week at the Watcher's Council!
Congratulations to all the Winners!
As an aside -- my non-council submission caused a lot of discussion amongst the council members this week. I submitted it because I considered it to be among the more notable and controversial items to have been floating around the blogosphere. Frankly, I didn't agree with it and did not vote for it -- its satire came at the wrong time and on a subject that I think was inappropriate. To my fellow members of the Watcher's Council (and anyone else) who took offense at its submission, I offer no apology for having submitted it, and note that it placed third in the voting even without either of my votes. Obviously there were members of the Watcher's Council who saw it as having greater merit among the submissions than I did.
