The Jon Swift Memorial Roundup 2015

Jon Swift (aka Al Weisel), a brilliant blogger and satirist, and sometime contributor to Shakesville, used to wrap up each year by asking as many bloggers as he could contact to submit their best posts of the year for a massive roundup of awesome writing.

Weisel died in 2010, and, in his honor, Batocchio of Vagabond Scholar has continued to compile an annual Jon Swift Memorial Roundup.

Here is 2015's, and, as always, there's lots of good stuff there.

The piece I submitted this year is "Jeanie Bueller's Day of Feminist Killjoying." I don't know that it's precisely the best thing I've written all year, but it was a piece that I liked a lot.
