"Wings of Justice" Award to Steve Gilliard

Wings of Justice

In an age when liberal blogging has become more competitive and many of its practitioners celebrities in their own right, Gilliard sought nothing other than to blog on behalf of fairness and justice.

"For helping to give me, and thousands of other progressives, back our faith in our country and in ourselves," Steve's BuzzFlash nominator notes. "With biting wit and snake-eyed determination, he fought the lies and obfuscation of our duplicitous opponents and never wavered in his love for his country and for his fellow citizens."

In a tribute on, Gilliard's dedication is duly lauded. "He wrote 237 posts that month by my count -- yes, you read that right. One of the ways he was a pioneer was that he considered blogging his job. His readers were his bosses, and he wasn't going to let them down -- not one single day."

Most bloggers are white. Gilliard was African-American, but his only race was to get to the bottom of the truth.

Steve Gilliard, may God be with you. You've earned your Wings of Justice.
