Nick and I obviously don't see eye-to-eye on a number of issues, but I like and respect Nick very much. He fights hard for what he believes, but doesn't make it personal.
In any case, at the party Nick presented me with this, the OCEA "Blemmy" (short for "blog Emmy") for our coverage of the 1st Supervisor District special election:
I think it is a wonderful irony that center-right Red County/OC Blog's very first blog award should come from a government employee union.
Thank you, Nick! And also thanks tot he rest of the Blogpen, to whom this award belongs, including Quang Pham and especially Mark Leyes. Without Mark's reporting, commenting and analysis, our coverage of the special election wouldn't have been nearly as good or complete.
