i'm deeply honored
P.L.A. has suggested a yearly round of awards for left-of-center blogs, dubbed The Koufax Awards (named after Sandy Koufax, "in our estimation, the greatest left-handed baseball pitcher of all time"). I am flattered and pleased that some kind soul nominated Planet Swank in the Best Design category. (Now I really need to get my cascading style sheets in order...)
I haven't made any suggestions yet, as choosing the best from among the quality sites I visit regularly is a daunting task. Look at the list at left; while not all are left-of-center blogs, they're all admirable.
But I'm grateful not only for the nod but to Dwight Meredith for the suggestion. It's a marvelous opportunity to take stock of the many quality left-leanming blogs out there. Since I started this project back in April, I've become acquainted with numerous fine lefty bloggers--Dwight Meredith among them--that have provided a welcome measure of sanity in the face of the bizarre.
