Give it up for the Gunpowder Monk, who has been commenting regularly all the way from war-torn Beirut not to mention posting on his own blog, Beirut Impromptu. In these troubled times every blog needs their own Beirut correspondent even if readers don't always agree with his or her take on what's going on. Tearfree, for example, is not into anything that smacks of conspiracy theories and, well, the Gunpowder Monk has, on accasion, showed signs of possible succumbing.
Still, Tearfree's interested in hearing Gunpowder's perspective on Hezbollah and she thinks it totally rocks that as an acoustics nerd, he also has something to contribute on babies and vacuum cleaners.
So congratulations from all your RTK readers, Gunpowder Monk and thanks for filling out our standard COW winner's questionnaire.
How did you discover RTK?
It all began when RTK posted a comment at my blog, the details of which I don't want to go into due to fear of sparking yet another debate. All I can say is that it only took a couple hundred more exchanges of insults for us to become buddies ;)
Who’s your favourite commenter?
Given that there are apparently 50,000 Canadians in Lebanon, do you have anything to say about softwood lumber?
What’s your favourite RTK blogging subject?
What do you want as a prize that Tearfree can actually give you?
P.S. Tearfree forgot to ask whether you have Dr. Oetker in Lebanon.
In former COW news, please check out the picks of Emily's new baby over at her blog. She definitely gets honourable mention for blogging and commenting this week. Her city may not be wartorn but she has a newborn and a toddler, and that counts for something.
