[Customary apologies for meta-blogging...]
This blog has been nominated for an award. Not that it is the only blog to be so nominated: it is among 300 up for a "Koufax Award" in the category "most deserving of wider recognition".
Which is, itself, a form of recognition. And what's not to like about that?
Most of the 300 are very much focussed on the US political and foreign policy news agenda. But among other notable blogs on the list for this category are: the excellent 3 Quarks Daily; Jodi Dean's I cite; the pugnacious Lenin's Tomb; the "theory" group blog with which I am involved, Long Sunday; one of the better political blogs, Opinions You Should Have; and then how could I not mention We move to Canada?
