I'd like to thank the academy

Well. I'm rather at a loss for words regarding this.I'll settle for "Wow! That's pretty cool." I don't know who at the Press makes these choices, but whoever you are, thanks very much.

One thing, though:

[A]mong political bloggers, Kuffner also stands out as a sensible moderate Democrat amid all the paranoid libertarians, smug right-wingers and shrill lefties typing their screeds in cloudy cuckoo land.

To paraphrase some famous guy, "Some people call you the paranoid, the smug, the shrill. I call you my base."

Anyway. It's nice to know that a logo and a buck can still buy you a ticket on the light rail. Good thing, too, since blogging apparently continues to be a non-moneymaker for most of us. (Who knew?)

Congrats! Well deserved honor!

But now I wonder: Am I the paranoid one or the smug one?

Hey -- I may be a libertarian, but I'm not paranoid.

Just get those black helicopters away from my house.

Anyway, congratulations on the honor!

Congratulations on receiving this honor!

Now, don't let the fame go to your head. Remember us little people. :-)

Oh, to think I knew him when he was a nobody. :-)

It's been a good year for you, and well deserved.

Apparently their blog crew is better than their music review crew. Otherwise someone who moved out of town six months ago would have gotten it. ;)

Congratulations on a well-deserved honor.

Sounds like another conspiracy by the liberal media if you ask me...
