And Then This Happened!

I just found out The BAG won Best Post in this year’s Koufax Awards for Katrina Aftermath: And Then I Saw These. I’m am unbelievably honored, and a bit shocked.

Certainly, the competition couldn’t have been of a higher caliber (including: Michael Berube; Lydia Cornell at BradBlog; Chris Clarke; Hunter at Daily Kos; The Fat Lady Sings; Bob Geiger; Digby; Sassy Texan at My Left Wing; PZ Myers at Pharyngula; and Glenn Greenwald).

Of course, I share the accolades with Alan Chin.  He gives me a hard time when I say this, but in my mind, he’s the rock star photojournalist of the liberal blogosphere.  I also share this with my incredible readers and commenters.  If you spend any time at all in my comment threads, you know they more than complement whatever it is I have to offer.

I offer my congratulations to everyone who participated.  The liberal blogosphere is rising.  Also, many thanks to Mary Beth and Dwight at Wampum for all their effort.
