How exciting to wake up today to discover that one of my articles has been nominated as a SEMMY finalist! Voting is now open, and I predict all voters will have a tough time choosing just one of the six fine pieces that have made it into the finals. Please let me congratulate each of my confreres in this portion of the SEMMYs: you have all made exceptional efforts to provide excellent reading materials for the locally-focused public. Well done!
Though this is my third year in the SEMMYs, I am thrilled afresh by the honor in 2010! My badge will be proudly displayed year-round here. Looking for something fun to do on a chilly winter afternoon? Go vote in the SEMMYs and we’ll all be certain that the best piece wins!
