I try not to get involved in political matters, but sometimes I’ve just got to take a stand. You might have heard that my good friend Phil Plait from Bad Astronomy (and co-forum administrator) is up for a Weblog 2006 award for the best science blog. Unfortunately, he’s up against some ferocious competition, including Pharyngula and Real Climate, two of my other favourite blogs. So vote for Bad Astronomy. You can actually vote once every 24 hours, so vote early, vote often. Stuff that ballot.
