I was on vacation and did not vote, and thus can't be credited for the choices of winners for the week of March 14.

First place in the council went to Change & The Cessation of British History by Wolf Howling. Congratulations!

Today marks a major landmark along the road to Britain's internal dissolution. In December, socialist Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown signed the Lisbon Treaty - the EU's new Constitution - transferring the majority of Britain's sovereign powers to the EU, subject to domestic ratification.

Votes also went to Californichusetts at Big Lizards.

Outside the council, the winner was Guitar Heroes by Michael Yon.

Votes also went to my nominee, An Empty Revolution, about the failure of Chavez in Venezuela, published in Foreign Affairs; The Tragedy of the Democratic Party by Thomas Lifson and Richard Baehr in American Thinker; The High School Massacre by Jonathan Medved; and Attorney Jon Schoenhorn's Arguments in the Doninger Case at the Second Circuit by Orient Lodge.
