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.
