Vote for UOmatters.com on the Eugene Weekly’s “Best of Eugene.” I propose,
4. Best local hell-raiser
26. Best self-published literary item (blog, zine)

Thanks! FWIW, my last muckraking award was from the Oregon Society of Professional Journalists, for this blog and for getting the DOJ to put the public records records manual online.
I think you will have a hard time beating the “LTD Nutsack Shouter” for best local hellraiser.
UOM could always start yelling. But, as soon as you weigh effectiveness, UOM wins hands down.
I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an administrator or even been uncivil. At least by the standards of my profession, which include a certain sarcastic license.
But if I ever do go there, LTD guy has certainly set a high bar for shouting. Why doesn’t Craig Pintens have him under contract yet?
UOM is a cross between a reality TV show and the Enquirer. Always opinionated, often snarky, always fact checked (ha ha). MG is UOM’s Paris Hilton….or Justin Bieber. How could it lose? I can only imagine this whole pot stirring mentality will end in a posthumous tome looking at some sort of educational economic theory with UO being the guinea pig.
