Overnight Open Thread And Weblog Award Reminder

To get you going feel free to contemplate this...

Blinded by the sun, John Favara ran over and killed the 12-year-old son of his neighbour in New York when the boy rode his mini-motorbike into the street on March 18, 1980.

To his great misfortune, the neighbour was John Gotti, who was soon to become the Godfather of the American Mafia. Four months later Mr Favara vanished.

...His body was never found, and prosecutors now believe that they know why. Almost 30 years later, an informant cited in court papers in an impending Mafia trial says that Mr Favara was murdered and disposed of in a barrel of acid. Charles Carneglia, the defendant, allegedly told the informant that acid was “the best method to use to avoid detection”.

Now, I'm not saying if you don't vote for Ace as the Best Conservative Blog in this year's Weblog Awards that's going to happen to you. I'm just asking, why take the chance?

You can vote once a day, everyday through the 13th. As of this posting Ace is in 2nd place to a Canadian blog. I really don't know how you people can let that happen and call yourselves Morons. Do you want the hobos laughing at you? No, I didn't think so. Vote!

Below the fold, a list of friends of the HQ that Gabe put together for your consideration as well.

The Anchoress is nominated in the Best Individual Blogger category.
Snapped Shot is nominated in the Best Photo Blog category.
Nice Deb is nominated in the Best Small Blog category.
This Ain't Hell, nominated for Best Military Blog.
Jammie Wearing Fool, nominated for Best Large Blog.

A couple more I'd like to offer up for your consideration...

OPFOR and Blackfive in the Milblog category.

The Stupid Shall Be Punished in the Up and Coming category. TSSBP is a Navy/submarine centric blog run by a Navy vet who is fighting cancer at the moment, so perhaps a few moron votes would offer some good cheer.
