  3. Jared T., I nominated your coverage of the 30th anniversary commemoration for best current events post. I really appreciate all your efforts to transcribe important happenings for those of us not able to be there.

    But alas, I also nominated the apparently unworthy Myregisblog.com for “all the fun and laughs” or something silly like that.

  4. No need to confess past sins, Hunter :)

    I appreciate your nomination and I’m sure I’d speak for my cobloggers in saying that we appreciate your readership and support.
