Weasel results

I’ve been so removed from all things blogging that I never got around to posting the Weasel results over at the Watcher’s Council. From my point of view, they’re very satisfying indeed, since my fellow Weasel watchers were kind enough to give me the winning vote.

On the Council side, win, place and show went to:

2  2/3 Judeo-Christian Doctrine and Moral Freedom
Bookworm Room
1  2/3 Ron Paul
Done With Mirrors
1  2/3 First Let the Lawyers Kill Us All
Soccer Dad
1  1/3 Lame Duck Crushes Christmas Turkeys
Big Lizards

On the non-Council side, win, place and show went to:

4 Fear
Silver Bullets
2 Laughter and Tears
Eternity Road
1 Must Police Be Representative? Whom Do They Represent?
Discriminations

As you can see, the really big winner was “Fear”, which actor Ron Silver wrote at his blog Silver Bullets.  It’s certainly worth reading, because it talks about the way in which those who do not believe that Islamic terrorists seek to hurt us dismiss our fears.  Silver lucidly points out that the Rooseveltian formulation that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” works best when people aren’t lined up to kill you.
