The Crescat blog is hosting the 2009 Cannonball Catholic blog awards. Many very fine blogs have been nominated including Pro Ecclesia, Thoughts of A Regular Guy, The Cranky Conservative and Southern Appeal. What? Why I hadn’t noticed this before! American Catholic has been nominated in two categories: best political…not American Papist, and Best New Kid On The Block. I know it will disappoint a few of our readers, but apparently we were not nominated in the Bat (Censored) Crazy category. Personally I despise awards and view them as completely meaningless—until I win the award of course. Any readers who might care to view the Crescat site, and, I don’t know, do something there like vote, just press here.
