... ah, right.  For some reason until five minutes ago, I was suffering 
a brain fart in which I read "11" and thought "2011", thereby detecting 
a chronal paradox.  So, that said, the story was worthy.

Well, like any judges, we will still judge subjectively but grow in 
maturity of judgment.  There is one objective measure we can take, 
though:  Reduce the number of Hall of Fame awards per year.  One award 
per year will eventually build into a big Lifetime Achievement gallery.

Yeah, I was around in 2009.  But being new to the group, I didn't vote. 
  I'll join in the next vote, though.  *Then* we can talk some more 
about how I like to decide things.  8{D>
