The Smallest Minority Wins Week One

Week One of the New Weblog Showcase is at an end, and we have our first winner.
Congratulations to Kevin of The Smallest Minority. His post, Is the Government Responsible for Your Protection, Part II pulled a come-from behind victory to end the contest with 9 links, making it the winner for the week.
I did not add it to my post on changed rules for the contest going forward, but I do have one more request for contest participants. Each Monday I will post a ‘results post’ like this one, and I would ask that anybody who participated in the week’s contest link to it on their weblog once it is up. This will give one last burst of visibility to the full list of participants, as well as keeping up the visibility of the contest itself. I won’t have any real way to enforce this provision, but consider it a polite request.
So, for posterity, here are the complete results of this first week’s Microbes On Parade. Thanks to everyone who participated, and especially those who linked to the new bloggers.
And if you want to sign up for this weeks’ contest — go to it!
