Award season

Your last chance to make nominations for the Koufax Awards is tomorrow at 11:59 PM (presumably Eastern time). If you haven't done so already, review the categories, then go back to that first link and make your choices. When the time comes to vote, if you don't see your preferred options available, it's your own fauly if you never nominated them.

Jack brings us the DUMB@SS of the Year awards.

Since [June of 2003], the DUMB@$$ AWARDS have come to symbolize the breadth and depth of human stupidity…and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that this barrel has no bottom. The stupid shall always be among us…

And Jack shall be there to chronicle and make snarky comments about it. It's a valuable public service that you do, sir. Just be careful not to get any of it on you.

Finally, Jim Henley's Unqualified Successes are to my knowledge the longest-running blog awards going - this year's version is #5 in the series. Check it out.

UPDATE: It's not a blog thing, but the Dallas Morning News named the city of Houston as its Texan Of The Year, and that's worth linking to. Thanks for the luv, fellas.

Thanks, for the warning, Chuck. I have had to give myself an honorary DUMB@$$ AWARD previously, and I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again. I'm a bit absent-minded sometimes, and it occasionally catches up with me.... ;o)

This is not the same Jim Henley that is running in TX-07, is it?

Matt - No, they're two different Jim Henleys. Blogger Henley is aware of candidate Henley, for what it's worth.

Jack's "DUMB@$$ of the Year" Awards were a hoot! My only gripe is that I don't understand his priorities - most of the really good candidates only got a (dis)honorable mention - even Pat Robertson, who should be #1 every year in any sane ranking scheme, easily beating out judges with penis pumps and others whose DUMB@$$ery consisted of merely failing to keep their sex drives under control.
