Writer of the Month: February 2010

Turns out that it's actually March 2nd today and not February 30th as I had previously thought. That means two things: 1) I now have to pay some fines to the library and 2) I'm overdue to announce the Lefty's Last Cry Writer of the Month for February 2010!

This is the first installment in what will be a monthly tradition, in which we identify a writer whose work for the past month strikes us as particularly excellent. This is our way of showing appreciation to our incredible writing staff who make this blog what it is. We couldn't do it without you guys.

February 2010 has been a particularly successful and productive month at Lefty's Last Cry, both in terms of content production and readership. We've had a lot of great submissions this past month, with both our old writers coming back and stepping up their game as well as some new blood that we hope to see more of in the future, so naturally this ended up being a tough call, because you guys have all been great. Nevertheless, we are pleased to announce that our very first Writer of the Month at Lefty's Last Cry is...


In the month of February, Nick has composed three posts (Conservative Constitutional Pornography, All the Good Torture Enablers Escape To U.C. Berkeley, and Democracy is Over Forever) the first of which was picked up in Crooks and Liars a few weeks ago, which gave Lefty's some much appreciated exposure. You can check out the collection of Nick's work here.

Nick has been on our writing staff for a while, joining us in April 2009 after the College Democrats of Indiana State Convention at Notre Dame. He has done great writing on Lefty's in the past, but in the month of February he really came to define his writing style and produced exceptional content for this blog. We commend him on his great work.

Keep it up!

Your Editors
Bill, Henry, and Brendan

61% of people polled on the Fox News/Opinion Dynamic disagree with your decision, while 36% agree, and 22% think I was born in Kenya and therefore believe I am ineligible for this award.
