A Koufax Nomination (re: Torture Memos) I Might Actually Have a Chance At

In my third (wow!) Koufax nomination, Discourse.net is nominated for The Koufax Awards: Best Series for my item on the Bybee Torture Memo.

This isn't like my other nominations, where although I'm delighted to be in their company, I think other people so clearly deserve to win that it would be a travesty to vote for me. I could cope with this one.

So, please, if you liked the series, go vote — once.

Oddly, even though the nomination is for a series, it doesn't mention the several related items I wrote, including:

Update: The nice people at Wampum have included the whole list now.

    “Twenty-three terror suspects tried to hang or strangle themselves at the US military base in Guantanamo Bay during a mass protest in 2003, the military confirmed today.

    The incidents came during the same year the camp suffered a rash of suicide attempts after Major General Geoffrey Miller took command of the prison with a mandate to get more information from prisoners accused of links to al-Qaeda or the ousted Afghan Taliban regime that sheltered it.”
