Nominated for a Cliopatria award!

Guess what? Jeremy Young of Progressive Historians nominated me for the Cliopatria award for Best Individual (History) Blog. How cool is that? You can add your voice too, if you feel so inclined!

I'm honored, if tired. I've been sick for the past couple of weeks - on round two of antibiotics. I feel there's so much that needs to be discussed, but I haven't had the energy to post. So I'm giving you links to some of my favorite posts from the past. Browse at will.

That is fabulous. I laughed when I read "even though I often disagree with her conclusions". Still you get his "best blog" vote. Now that's impressive. (But how on earth can anyone disagree with your conclusions???)

I certainly hope you are soon better. This has gone on way too long!

Did you catch Keith Olbermann two nights ago speak the truth about waterboarding and this administration's march toward fascism? It was one of his finest moments.

We need so much more truth and dissent, especially on the airwaves. To balance the phony "fair and balanced" "Fox". Good descriptive name.

Voices like yours keep me sane.

Thanks, Dawn. I feel the same way about Keith Olbermann - his outrages helps make mine make sense, you know? Yes - I saw his "special comment" on waterboarding. Keith is a real treasure, isn't he???
