We weeded out the most popular stories from July 2009, since we suspect that the traffic surge for those stories this month resulted from having published that month's list, giving it the same "self-fulfilling prophecy" quality as the New York Times Bestseller list.
As it happens, these "most viewed" videos are among our favorites, too! As always, they reflect an array of interests, from a wide spectrum of sources:
Shockwaves Through My Soul
Silverton Saves Its Paper
Tiger Eye: Up Close and Personal
Women at Arms
Last Chance High School
US Citizens Born by Midwife Denied Passports
The Pied Piper
Living on Havana's Edge
Got Geese? Call the Geesebuster!
