I, on the other hand, think that it is telling that
the quality of entries this time *without* a restriction, was much higher than
the previous, restricted, Contest . . .
Not that it will make any difference if we can't
get anyone else to play the games . . . even the Looney's haven't judged the
last two Contests.
