Lists! More lists!

Actually, this one is legit. A list of the best journalism of 2008.

A taste:

Into the Valley of Death by Sebastian Junger

This dispatch from "the deadliest pieces of terrain in the world for U.S. forces" chronicles Army outposts where "men spend their days in a surreal combination of backbreaking labor—building outposts on rocky ridges—and deadly firefights, while they try to avoid the mistakes the Russians made." This piece made me appreciate, more than anything else I've read, the dangerous conditions braved by Americans on the front lines.
