Meanwhile, over at the Weblog Awards:

The 2006 Weblog Awards: Best Centrist Blog: The Weblog Awards are the world's largest blog competition, with over 1 million votes cast in the last three years for nearly 1,000 blogs.

The Moderate Voice is ahead of Ann Althouse--even though The Moderate Voice has asked people not to vote for it, and says it prefers to be crushed by Ann Althouse in a landslide.

Awesome.

Let's all remember Ann Althouse's greatest hit, from her Criminal Procedure 102 class:

It's terrible that the poor man [Jean Charles de Menezes] was shot to death yesterday by the London police.... But... everyone -- at least in London -- now knows not to run from the police, especially not onto a train and while wearing bulky clothing. Is it not true that yesterday's sad mistake has already solved the problem it represents? In fact, a further good has been created: as ordinary persons change their behavior and drop the bulky clothing and unnecessary running, the real terrorists will stand out more. Indeed, if anyone ever behaves like Jean Charles de Menezes again, the presumption that he is a terrorist will be so overwhelmingly strong that the police really must kill him....
