The "3 P’s" Blog Award!

Pete Abel over at Central Sanity recently listed Black Shards as one of his picks for the Pissant Partisan Provocateur award and I couldn’t be happier about it!

(Well, actually, I wouldn’t mind having a Techorati a bit higher than the present 280,190, if we’re telling the truth and all…)

At any rate, Pete is a really good writer with politics I admire and is one of the most sensible, fair-minded contributors to The Moderate Voice, my favorite blog to read. I truly do appreciate the recognition.

In turn, here are my 5 favorites who meet the criteria of the (dreaded) 3 P’s:

  1. American Future by Marc Schulman – Not only do I like the coolness factor of his first name, but Marc is a very strong thinker who can and does really drill into the meat of an issue. One of my favorite posts of his was titled “Orwell, the Left, and 9/11“. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the problem with modern liberalism.
  2. Michael P.F. van der Galiën – Michael is another strong writer and thinker who provides an interesting European perspective on issues. I’ve recently found his posts on Turkey to be really interesting, particularly because of the strategic importance of that nation to the West.
  3. Sister Toldjah – You go, girl! Author of many “Sister Toldjah moments”, she is highly opinionated, strongly conservative, and a woman secure enough to accept that men have a place in the world too. The only thing is that ST is really too popular to truly deserve this particular award…
  4. Melanie Phillips – Melanie’s articles and diary entries are both very strongly written, logical, thoughtful, pro-West, and pro-democracy blogs. She’s severely under-appreciated in terms of her blog’s ranking. Severely. I have not had a chance to read her book “Londonistan” yet but eagerly await the opportunity to do so.
  5. RiderX by Eric Gunnerson – Now for something completely different. I originally started reading Eric’s programming blog but came to appreciate his cycling posts more and more. Eric’s descriptions of the endurance rides he makes around the Pacific Northwest are so detailed it’s almost like I’m there riding with him (but without the pain, sweat, and tears).

Ladies and gentlemen, congratulations and keep up the great work!
