  1. Well, there’s one name I’m glad to see on that list. I’ll feel better about the others if I beat them. Now it’s off to the spirit singer’s to work up some curses. I think I’ll need them.

  2. Or rather long list. Short list in relation to the submissions pile — long list in relation to the culling that is to come.
