Dymphna’s incapacity has prevented her from keeping up with her posts for the Watcher of Weasels, so I am helping out.
For the September 2nd vote, Dr. Sanity had the winning Council post with A Nation that Stands for Nothing Deserves a Media that Believes in Nothing.
The winning non-Council post was a very fine piece, Gates of Fire by Michael Yon.
All of the posts make good reading, and I recommend that you stop by the Watcher and take a look.
