Nominations Open For Second Round Of Year-End Awards

[ Posted Monday, December 11th, 2023 – 17:34 UTC ]

I am frantically trying to get ready for the holidays, which includes getting ready for our year-end awards columns. Normally I would post this second-round plea for nominations for these awards between when the first installment runs and the second. But this year I have decided to run the columns on the Fridays right before the holiday weekends, meaning few people will be paying attention during the between-the-holidays week. So I decided to put this call out early.

As always during December, we would also humbly point out that it is a dandy time to donate to the site, as we haven't even hit halfway of our annual pledge drive target yet. So if you have the means and the time, please consider funding this site for all of next year. Click on the thermometer above and it will take you to the donation page. And thanks!

Without further ado, here are the categories for the second and final segment of our year-end awards column. If you missed it, you can also check out the first list of nominating categories, which ran last week.

I hope everyone's in a holiday mood and has plenty of good suggestions! Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go put some lights up outside the house....

    best idea is probably tying ukraine and israel together, not only in terms of funding, but in terms of casting both as part of the same struggle.
