Our Writer of the Month

This is a new feature of ours, so who will claim the coveted inaugural Writer of the Month award?  Will it be long-time blog veteran Mr. K?  Or that rapscallion Joe C.?  No, with all pomp and circumstance deserved, the honor goes to:

Unlikely Hospitalist

He wrote quite a bit this month, but more importantly, the writing quality was quite high.  Don't believe me?  Instapundit and Hot Air agree, as they found it fit to link to UH a number of times in February.
