Welcome to the Craziest Blog in Eugene
It's official: I'm nuts. At least, according to today's (Friday) Eugene Register-Guard in their annual "Best of Eugene" section. (I only stumbled across it in the waning moments of the day). To wit (albeit not necessarily literally):
Eugene produces bloggers like joggers

Google "Eugene blog" and you get about 3.4 million hits.
So it was with great confidence and even some small sense of adventure that we set out on a short cyber journey - though one that kept getting longer and longer - to find the Best Eugene Blog....
- Craziest blogger out there. This special award is given mostly because we know the blogger personally. Eugene wild man Hart Williams' blog, Zug, is only marginally about Eugene. But it is produced here by a guy who can count, among his other accomplishments, a career as a porn film producer in Southern California and as a functionary in the Oregon Democratic Party. Lotta politics; www.hartwilliams.com/zug.*
[*Note: try THEIR address for me and you'll get a special surprise.]
We skip down past the nominees and ...
Finally, the envelope, please. And - it's empty.
Following the lead of the jury in the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for drama, the Best Of ... judges have declined to offer an award this year. There were some interesting contenders, but as of now, the field for Best Eugene Blog remains open.
Tune in next year.
I presume that this was meant to be a compliment. (Then again, I've been told that if I got a box filled with horseshit, I'd just assume that they forgot to pack the horse. You be the judge.)
Since there is no byline, I cannot tell you who it is that "knows me personally," but I presume that this is all a good thing and such.
Er, I would like to thank all the little people who made this possible: Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy, Dopey, Bashful, Sleazy, Grumpy, Bipolar and, of course, Al the Beer Fairy. (Al appears courtesy of Brown Bag Productions' MOYST.)
Should you or any of your friends be caught reading this karazeeeee blog, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.
Good luck, Mr. Phelps.
