Best Defense chief awards correspondent and hype man
Tom was unable to post today because of some rare technical difficulties, but in his absence we got some great news here at FP world headquarters. The Best Defense has won the 2010 Digitial National Magazine award for best blog!
The photo on the left, taken just moments ago, shows the "Ellie" en route back to Washington in the victorious grip of Executive Editor Susan Glasser.
Congratulations to Tom as well as the incredible community of readers who've helped make this blog a must-read.
