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
|1 2/3||Ron Paul
Done With Mirrors
|1 2/3||First Let the Lawyers Kill Us All
|1 1/3||Lame Duck Crushes Christmas Turkeys
On the non-Council side, win, place and show went to:
|2||Laughter and Tears
|1||Must Police Be Representative? Whom Do They Represent?
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.
