The SerbBlog Winners Circle!
It gives me great pleasure to tell you that Tina Hone won her seat on the Fairfax (Virginia) County School Board by a very large margin! There were three School Board positions available for for the three top vote-getters in the election, and Tina did better than just get a seat, she was #1 in a field of six candidates, garnering 92,612 votes (19% of the vote). Way to go, Tina! We know that you will do a fabulous job!
And Neil Clark's blog won as "Best UK Blog" in the Weblog Awards, coming in first by a large margin of over 400 votes. Neil is a rare breed -- a journalist with brains, guts and integrity who didn't just jump on the "hate the Serbs" bandwagon and buy the wartime propaganda for his reporting. Neil researched and did what journalists are supposed to do, see both sides of the story and not just get sucked into a media feeding frenzy. We are very happy to congratulate Neil on his big victory!
And to all of you who supported the success of both of these fine people with your votes, congratulations goes to you for helping the good guys win this time!
