I don’t know that there’s much distinction in being named Best Local Blog by Ann Arbor’s free monthly magazine, the Current, especially when the blog to place second, Ann Arbor is Overrated, has only been updated once in the past year, but, still, I wanted to say thank you. Thanks to the two or three of you out there who took the time to take the Current poll and fill in my name. It’s nice to know that there are at least a few people out there reading. I never thought that I’d top the thrill of being named the 8th Most Influential Political Blogger in the Least Politically Influential State, but I guess it goes to show you what can happen if you never stop striving to be the best.
And, for what it’s worth, I’d like to dedicate this award to the snitches of Philly, Republicans too afraid to say that they believe in science, the Libertarian paradise of Somalia, and
Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy. I couldn’t have done it without them.
