Watcher of Weasels Nominations – Politics of Nomination Edition

Two weeks in a row! Woot! The Watcher of Weasels Council has given my article on Texas Rancher, Dr. Mike Vickers, an Honorable Mention. In a conference call, Vickers said Highway I-10 is controlled by drug cartels. At the same time, the stories broke on El Paso (right on I-10) residents waking up to billboards with effigies hanging, and a message “Accept Bribes or Die.” It wouldn’t be easy to put-up the signs or effigies. Made me wonder if someone in El Paso was paid-off to look the other way. Many thanks to the Council. Here are their nominations, and a handy weekend reading list:

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

    Congratulations, Maggie!

    Thank you. I’ve been to El Paso and along the I-10 through Texas over the years. The whole area has changed for the worse. If you are brave, go to San Antonio and take a short stroll around outside of the River Walk. It looks like a poverty stricken town in Central America. Same with El Paso… but just pass through the pass. I do like the signs at the rest areas with a phone number to report crimes. Didn’t used to have the signs or need them, but things have changed.
