Quote of the Day - Awards become corroded, friends gather no dust.
MIPTC is pleased to announce that it is one of three finalists (scroll down to I.16.) for the 48th Annual LA Press Club Journalism Awards for individual weblog. The other finalists are the LA Times' Lakers Blog and LYT Rules blog. I've skimmed the blogs of the other finalists, and have enjoyed reading both - very different perspectives and very different styles.
The Times commented that its writers have never read MIPTC and probably couldn't understand a lawyer blog if they tried, but I'm betting they probably could. The Times asked me for my opinion on the Lakers' first round draft pick options. While I'm way out of my league here, I'll go out on a limb and recommend that they should pick a big man who can rebound and score. But that's just me. And yes, I'd be happy to help draft that contract.
Along with the other bloggers, MIPTC walks down the red carpet, rubbing elbows with the likes of Larry King (wink, wink) for the Awards Ceremony at the Biltmore Hotel this Saturday night, and I'll report back on the winner next week. Meanwhile, congrats to the other finalists!
