For regular readers (yeah, I imagine my readers are regular), Watcher’s Council is a blogging group posted at all corners of the globe.  The writing is a hybrid of politics and not-politics (one of the three seminal blog divides: politics/not politics, food/not food, porn/not porn).  I’ve been following some of these folks for years, and their thoughtful commentaries deserve wider audiences.

While I’m still trying to understand the set-up, I asked for and was included in their “Watcher’s Council” nominations for notable posts this week.  Below you’ll find the nominated articles.  They may interest or infuriate, but they won’t bore.  They cement my belief that the internet is the Gentleman’s Journal of the new century . . . and just in time.

Here is the Watcher’s Council Nominations for the Week.  Rules are at Watcher of Weasels:
