There’s always something to howl about

The Odysseus Medal competition — The long list

We had a lot of news this week, some tragic, some comical. All of it and then some is represented here. This is “the long list” — the total list of nominees that made the cut to be considered for the short list, the nominees available for voting for The People’s Choice Award.

What gets cut from this list? Posts that are too short, too stoopid, too much local or too much other people’s work. Even so, making this list of entries is an achievement, as you’ll see as you read them. There are some very serious minds out there, and it’s a delight to be able to showcase them.

For Aaron Anglin, may he rest in peace, the Ave Maria:

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.
Sancta Maria mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.

And for all the ActiveRainers who may yet find themselves left out in the cold, here is a link to Roger Miller singing The Ballad of Waterhole #3 (The Code of the West).

With that, the long list:
