The Watcher’s Council members took time off from turkey and stuffing to read and vote on the Thanksgiving week submissions. If you haven’t read the submissions, they’re good, damn good. The winners, placers, and show-ers are below. But first, a little reminder that the Watcher’s Council forum is up. I didn’t participate this week (for the same reason I didn’t blog, which was that I was on the road and the iPad sometimes defeats me), but you’ll enjoy what other Council members have to say about the Gaza ceasefire.
