Farming Pathogens Semifinalist
Thanks to your votes Farming Pathogens piece ‘The Alan Greenspan Strain’ is a semifinalist in 3 Quarks Daily’s search for best political blog post of the year. Those posts remaining will be judged as early as today by 3 Quarks Daily editors. The final six will then be judged by Harper’s and Lapham’s Quarterly incorrigible Lewis Lapham.
If you’ll excuse the Stephen Colbert impression, THANK YOU FARMING PATHOGENS NATION! We will continue to write here what we learn as long as agriculture and evolution are around. That is, yeah, we’re in for the long haul. If not on the internetz, then back as far as we need to go, including, perhaps, where we’re aiming anyway, into the very landscape around us.
UPDATE. We didn’t make this year’s cut, but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. Congratulations to the finalists, including Eric Michael Johnson who wrote cogently about last year’s influenza pandemic.
