Right now there is a $10,000 law school blogger scholarship competition going on and Kim has been nominated.

    Grant Brisbee’s McCovey Chronicles is much more than just a blog. So many of us have McCovey Chronicles bookmarked as our first destination on the internet, and it is much more than a place simply to read the musings of the author. Grant has created a community, a discussion forum, a virtual cafe meetingplace, and we thank him for it.

    You should too.

    As someone who has benefited so often from her untiring efforts and unbelievable work ethic, I wholeheartedly endorse and vote for Amanda Kern. Besides all of the individual posts (which admittedly have slowed down considerably as she\’s getting ready to deliver her second baby ANY day now!)- take a look at the the VCC Flickr set- she\’s maintained and posted them all.

    Did I mention she teaches full time in addition to attending school, blogging, and being a wife and mother? Wait a minute, is Wonder Woman eligible for this? ;o)

  74. Michael in MI Says:

    Matt Burden has done so much to help educate the masses about the military, to help memorialize those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and who are \”Fallen but Never Forgotten\”, to help bring attention to \”Someone You Should Know\” and support the overall war effort abroad and here at home through his military blog Blackfive. I hope that all his readers can help him out and help him win a scholarship. He is very deserving of it.

    @Kevin Lim – no, it\’s not shut off. You\’re probably running into the one-vote-per-IP rule in the poll. Are your friends all accessing the internet from the same router or some shared internet setup (a dorm might do it).

  132. Soldier's Mom Says:

    I would ask that you all at least look at Matthew Burden. Matt is not only a great blogger, but also one of my American Heroes! You don’t have to believe in the war to believe in soldiers and especially those who are at the tip of the spear putting themselves in harm’s way and Matt not only talks the talk, but he’s walked the walk and is someone that keeps our American soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coasties at the forefront of people’s minds no matter what you think of the President, Congress or the war — these kids didn’t ask to get sent over, they just said “yes sir”, saluted smartly and went to protect those of us that stayed behind. Matt is a good blogger, a good student, a good soldier, a good husband and I would appreciate you giving him a chance — when was the last time you knew a soldier that had $10,000 laying around to finish school with?

    Grant Brisbee’s McCovey Chronicles is the best-written site I’ve ever seen on the web. His mix of insight, humor, and pathos (particularly this past summer) has created an online community, and continues to brighten the day for hundreds of loyal readers. Despite working and going to school, he finds time to inform and entertain each day. A vote for Grant Brisbee is a vote for truth, justice, and the American way*, and guarantees that the terrorists haven’t won.

    I voted for the blog that was best-written, most poignant, and funny. And I never dreamed I would describe a blog about cancer as funny! Kim Klein is truly amazing – commuting 50 miles a day to go to school, raising 3 kids, excelling in law school, and, oh yeah, battling cancer with an amazing attitude. This blog is not just for breast cancer patients, law students, or women. Kim’s inspiring story can touch anyone who reads it. $10,000 is just a small drop in the bucket of what she is going to need, considering her and her children’s educations that she needs to pay for, let alone her medical expenses. And, according to her blog, she wants to be a public interest lawyer, which is not going to do much to help with those debts. I am an attorney at a large law firm and I would have trouble paying for all that; I can’t imagine if I only made one-fourth of my salary, as public interest lawyers do. Best of luck to you, Kim.

    Go Kim…I have known Kim for several years and have often admired her positive attitude and her “all out” effort that she puts forth. It did not matter if the task was big or small, she always gave it her all as if this were the most important thing in her life at that moment. Even now with breast cancer knocking at her door, she has opened that door and decided to again give it her all. She has allowed many people to view her journey through cancer on her blog. This I find to be very selfless and admirable. Her blog is a valuable resource for many people who may be going through cancer, know someone who has cancer or for someone like myself who had no idea has much was really involved in treating cancer. This blog has opened my eyes to a whole new thinking about how people live through and deal with a cancer diagnosis. So before you go thinking this is a popularity contest, visit Kim’s blog and learn something. I know you will be surprised and impressed! Open your heart to help Kim like she has helped so many people so many times! She is one in a million!

    I’d just like to submit that this is a silly way to pick the winner of a ten thousand dollar scholarship. Popularity is not a mark of quality, and web polls are an acceptable measure of neither. Some light-duty investigation has revealed that open proxies have been used to vote, and even putting this aside, you can be sure that the bloggers are likely to try and rope people into voting here who haven’t read the blogs. This ‘competition’ has about as much integrity as the stereotypical high school student body president election. Disappointing.

    As I understand it, the voting system here allows one vote per IP address. This would be fine if there was anything approaching a 1:1 correspondence between people and IP addresses controlled by them. This is not the case.

    Some people, like in the office situation to which you referred, share a single IP address, while others have multiple IP addresses available to them. Each of the computer lab machines at my university have different IP addresses. Given that I can log into any of them, if so inclined, I could vote several times. Additionally, there is the problem of open proxies– these are computers which, knowingly or unknowingly, allow others to access the internet using their IP address and thus would allow someone with a list of such proxies to vote multiple times.

    There is enormous potential for abuse of this voting system, which is why I argue that it should not be used to decide the winner of a $10,000 scholarship.

A blog which I regularly visit had posted her site as a link- but I feel like all that have bashed the system of voting, or the corruption- need to understand that I, for one, did go through and read ALL the pther blogs before voting. I was torn, a bit between Kim & Matt (being that my husband is an active duty marine I feel his blog is also very good.) but they are all good if not excellent blogs. I just felt like Kim was the most deserving of them all, her ability to talk about cancer in a real sort of way speaks to my heart, and after praying about who to vote for, I felt it was her. blessings to ALL the contestants!

    My 3 year old son, Riley was born with trisomy 21, Down syndrome. Thomas Peters’ tribute to his son, Eliot moved me to tears. How wonderfully inspiring that Eliot’s parents so exuberantly celebrated his short life and so clearly recognized God’s grace in their son. I feel privileged to have shared in some small way in the celebration of Eliot’s life.

    Great collection of blogs. Quite sad what LawMom has faced; however my vote goes to someone working to cure human disease rather than afflicted with it. The former is much more rare and valuable than the latter. Good work Shelley.

    […] How many times have we been reminded not to judge a book by it’s cover? Well, in my experience, quiete a few- it’s just one of those phrases that seems to apply to everything. However, when looking at various blogs belonging to those in the running for a $10 000 scholarship, I can’t help but judge their blog partly on appearance. You know that blog you click on and it’s filled with large blockquotes and crowded paragraphs, and it’s just a mess to read… it’s not very nice to read and you never really get through the whole post do you?

  509. Anthony Morelli Says:

    I voted for Thomas Peters simply because he is broad in his topics as well as articulate in his articles that need clarifying. Would like to see more coverage of the Bishop’s conference when two orthodox and very articulate Bishops were not elected by their peers. Seems like a combination of jealousy and anti conservative bias in the vote. No wonder this conference is not very well respected by the faithful who see a liberal bias in the results. The Holy Spirit has HIS work cut out in trying to get this group on the same page as Pope Benedict XVI.

If you’ve got the time to spare, I’d really appreciate your vote. Compared to last year where there were only 10 finalists, there seems to be considerably more competition this year. As I’ve mentioned in the past, out-of-state Georgia Tech tuition isn’t cheap, especially when I’m going to be here for an extra semester or two from changing majors. […]
