A quick thank you to the judges of the Green Eyeshade Awards, a journalism contest that named the Juice the third-best blog at this past week's annual banquet. The contest is open to media in 11 states in the Southeast. This particular category prized "outstanding commentary or reporting in an online blog." Um, guilty?
Seriously, a very sincere thanks to the New Times writers whose posts keep the Juice fresh day in, day out. Thanks to behind-the-scenesters like Keith Hollar and Devin Desjarlais, who catch the typos and circulate reader traffic, respectively. Thanks to the commenters who ensure that every day this blog has a lively discussion. Often profane, but always lively.
