I'm honored

I just learned this blog has been named a finalist in the 2008 Weblog Awards - category: Best Up And Coming Blog (Authority between 51 and 100)
.
Thanks to those of you who nominated me; I know several of you nominated me and you have my sincere thanks.

Voting starts in a few days, I'll let you know as I learn more.

..You should Bee honored, you've covered McClatchy better than they've covered any subject. But a flaw in your business plan dooms you to oblivion. Just as you become King of the hill, the damned McClatchy's will go belly up and start stinking. And you'll lose the Bee. I suspect you'll look far and wide to find a worse managed, more biased, less informed and positively irksome subject to report on. But...I'm pullin' for ya.

Every time I read a leftist McClatchy blogger write how hateful you are, I know you are reaching pay dirt. The so-called tolerant lefties think they are the only ones talented enough to dish the dirt they select, and call it journalism, and you dare to call them out!

So, let’s get this straight. While McClatchy mines the dirt, selectively reports on the dirt, and reasonable readers say no to their dirty journalism, the dirty-faced miners cry foul.

Cutting down trees for dirty pulp must end I tell you. A few of Howard Weaver’s “F**king” remarks are needed to accentuate my point. Howard, say it, as you say it best. Don’t be shy now o’ boy, the environment is at stake.

Thanks Archer. The great thing is, I'm having a blast while McClatchy executives are going mental.

Well done, this seems to be the only place we can find out the truth!

Say, did Howard Weaver's blog get nominated for anything. The door's wide open for answering this question!

I don't see how you can consider yourself a voice among equals when you have not attacked Sarah Palin or any of her family members, her hair dresser, her high school friends, or her choice of toenail polish.

Obviously you are not a classically trained professional journalist with the highest ethical standards.

I read an interesting comment concerning Howard Weaver taunting Jeff Jarvis to take his $1000 bet on the eventual return to health of the McClatchy company.

It sounded like a joke, but I wonder? Loose lips sinks ships, and all that.
