Watcher’s Council Nominations – Dog Days Edition


Ah, the sultry lazy days at the end of summer, when the warm weather brings out the torpor and laziness in all of us and little gets accomplished except by the determined and the desperate.The Romans were the first to label this time of year the Dog Days(dies caniculares), noting that Sirius, the Dog Star, was the brightest star in the night sky at this time of year.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.
