Watcher's Council Results, 8/03/07

The Council has spoken! A complete list of results can be found at the site of our fearless leader, the infamous Watcher of Weasels

This week's winner is
The Colossus of Rhodey: NEA Also Co Also Confused About SCOTUS Decision Regarding Race & Schooling
Hube's killer exposition on how the NEA continues to shill for racial preferrences in education. Congrats, Hube!

In second place was:
Right Wing Nuthouse: Whose freedom? What is Speech? - Rick's take on a Qu'ran flushing incident at Pace University, and the subsequent charging of the suspect with a felony hate crime. Well done, Rick?

For non-Council, the winner was my own nominee Michael Totten: Baghdad Night Raid a fine first hand account of the Iraq War on the ground by the one and only Michael Totten.

In second place for non-Council was Classical Values: Build a Better World By Destroying Wealth! a fascinating piece that examines the differences between actually creating wealth ( building a better restaurant, say) as opposed to what the author calls `rent seeking', parasitically siphoning off wealth by glomming on to things other people have already created, in the manner of some parasitic attorneys.

Hearty Kudos to all the winners!
