I think everyone should vote for Martin in this category...

That being said...

If I do the RACCies I will continue the Hall of Fame stuff no
matter how few people vote in in... not sure if Martin will
do that...

And I will vote and nominate stuff because I don't believe in
all of that impartial RACCie Administrator stuff... the
way I see it is that regardless of whether I vote or not
if will effect the outcome and by not voting I'd just be
boosting my own chances of winning and not who ever I'd
be voting for...

And I will accept bribes... for $50,000 I'll give you the
Raccie of your choice...

Just kidding... just kidding... :)

Of course since the ballor arrived on Feb 5th it seems that we should
at least have the period end on say March 5th....

Since my 2006 writing was much worse than my 2005 writing I
don't think I should win this....
