Thanks for the votes, y'all! The CBA tallies have been posted, and yours truly came in fifth for Funniest Blog (plus a decent showing in Smartest and Best Individual, which I thought was a real stretch...). Many congrats to Jeff at The Curt Jester, who won it handily.
This was an odd contest this year, I think. Granted, whoever I vote for never wins in American politics either, but I was a little shocked that Whispers in the Loggia came in SECOND for Best Insider Blog. Holy cow people, I think Rocco has personally wiretapped half the Vatican--and if that doesn't deserve King of Insider status, I don't know what does! Go over there right now and give that man a PayPal tip!
Anyhoo. Back to Holy Week!
(BTW, sic came through surgery OK, although not without funky complications. He's going to be fine, and hopefully crafting a funny piece out of the experience.)
