Well, Orcinus is included in the Weblog Awards' finalists for "Best Liberal Blog" this year, the first time we've been so honored. When I look at the rest of the list (one of which, Firedoglake, I also post at), I feel really very honored. Though to be honest I'm not sure popularity contests like this matter much (I think the Koufaxes, which seem to have faded away, were much more meaningful), but it's still fun to be included in the action. I certainly won't blame my readers if they're torn.
Vote early and often! And have fun.
