Happy Jezeversary!

I've lately felt that the great writers have been losing ground in the blogopolis, but there still exist outposts where great need is being met by writers who are brave, righteous, decent, and artful. Such a place is Jezebel, which launched a year ago with the seeming mission that it would be a critique of how the mass media confronted, or perhaps more often, dispensed with, women, to a place where a riveting, cross-current perspective could be reliably obtained on virtually everything. Rachel rightly named the site as one of the "Media Winners of 2007" and I'd say it was the best blog launch of that calendar year as well. So happy birthday, Jezebel, for these reasons and everything Amanda says, too. Annuit coeptis!
