Endorsement: Good Journalism

I've meaning to draw attention to and praise Conor Friedersdorf's curatorial/promotional efforts on behalf of really good long-form journalism. I first became acquainted with this effort when he posted his "Best Pieces of 2009" at the sadly departed True/Slant. But I'm glad he's kept it up on an a la carte basis over at the Daily Dish, where he's flagged a number of great pieces, including this one and this one. Google reveals that he also did a "best" list for 2008, which you can find here, and to which I will be devoting a good part of my weekend.
