    The PoTY regulations are like the Ten Commandments. They. Just. Don't. Change. You don't like it? Create your own election.

          I agree-although not sure I like the one about not being able to covet my neighbor's wife.

              Hmm....in the political threads, the progressives say that the conservatives are hidebound traditionalists; and the conservatives say that the progressives impose a rigid authoritarian orthodoxy. Maybe it's deeper than that? people just don't like others messing with their stuff?



              Your comment about the Ten Commandments somehow reminds me of George Carlin's great, great routine in which he edits them down to two.

              Here is my problem with the ten commandments- why exactly are there 10?

              You simply do not need ten. The list of ten commandments was artificially and deliberately inflated to get it up to ten. Here's what happened:

              About 5,000 years ago a bunch of religious and political hustlers got together to try to figure out how to control people and keep them in line. They knew people were basically stupid and would believe anything they were told, so they announced that God had given them some commandments, up on a mountain, when no one was around.

                  You're really over thinking PotY and the capacity of time and effort people have for putting into this think.

                        The corruption started years ago. The new school thinks this is an honor. It's not.

                            At a time like this I wish I'd made the voting public. That way I'd know which 32 people are idiots.

                              You can call us idiots, some of us might prefer to think of it as a counter-cultural protest movement coming to fruition.

                              Civility and thoughtfulness and generally being nice lead to someone winning an election originally designed to recognize other qualities. Who'd a thunk it?
