Watcher's Council results

Unbelievable. Guess who won?

First place in the Council category was The Colossus of Rhodey with Culture of Whine (a rant).

First place in the non-Council category was Serendituous Altruism with American troops in Afghanistan through the eyes of a French OMLT infantryman.

Full results can be seen here.

Congratulations, Hube. I recall reading that when you posted it and remember thinking the "Culture of Whine", in many cases, extends beyond school age and well into adulthood. I base this on my experience as a trainer for over 21 years. The excuses are the same, only the terminology has changed.

The other article you referenced "American Troops in Afghanistan..." was particularly moving as well.

Thanks, miscreant. BTW, did you ever get my e-mail from some weeks back?

PS, you need a new host...

Yeah, but Batman was the one who went against the grain. Survivability despite being a normal (though hugely physically trained) schmoe.

Sorry, Hube, I didn't get it.

Miscreant: Drop me a line at our e-mail addy noted on the right ("contact us").

Well deserved, Hube. A great post (and thanks for the link).

Yesssss! Congratulations...you earned it.

I thought that your touring through Europe post should have won the previous week. But runner-up isn't bad either.

Your personal posts really rock.
