Koufax Awards

The Koufax Awards for the best lefty bloggers are up. There are a number of categories, and thanks to you, my faithful readers, Confined Space has made it to the semi-finals in two categories: Best Single Issue Blog and Best Expert Blog.

So, who to vote for in which category? That's a hard one....

Me and Me in both.

But you can only vote for one in each. (Just click on the links above, scroll to the bottom and write the following words: "Confined Space." Or you can just send an e-mail here: Or here: It's always kind of embarassing asking people to vote for me. On the other hand, if I was really a shrinking violet, I wouldn't be writing this.)

Thank you.

The best part of these awards (aside from the fame, fortune and groupies) is that it shines the light on so many good blogs that you wouldn't ordinarily see. So check out the other blogs in these categories as well. If I wasn't voting for Confined Space, I'd seriously consider Informed Comment (the truth about Iraq), Effect Measure (Bringing Public Health to the public) as well as The Daily Howler (The Media) and Labor Blog (Labor Issues) among others.

and also make sure to visit: More categories soon.

Finally, while you're there, be sure to check out

Oh, and while you're there, don't forget to check out Wampum: Progressive Politics, Indian Issues, and Autism Advocacy They're the kind people who are working their butts off to bring us these awards.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.....
