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.
