Best 'left" blogs

The "Koufax awards" recognize the best "left" blogs (Sandy Koufax was a left-handed baseball pitcher, for those who don't follow these things). If you like particular blogs, and want to see them recognized and/or think they deserve to be more widely read, feel free to go here to read about the categories etc., and here to nominate your favs in whatever category(ies) you think appropriate.

Personally I find a lot of lefty blogs rather arcane but my blogroll on the right column lists the best I've come across. What do you think? Next year I'll hunt down some more. Here at LOR we're rooting for Eli Stephens' Left I on the News in the 'best blog ' category.
