Vote-by-email:"And Foujita looks like he might be a shut-out." Seems a little early to call, but we shall see.

Foujita. But not by a mile.

I'll definitely go with Fontana (though I like them both).

This whole process is interesting in how much it shows the degree my aesthetic sensibility congrues with that of my wife(aka Nichim). It might be interesting to look at data from spousal pairs of IAT voters sometime. (Or any pairs - What would it take to calculate the pairs that agree most and disagree most?)

I like both of the new specimens a lot. That girl with the hat really kicks my butt. And yet, to my surprise, Fontana.

("What would it take to calculate the pairs that agree most and disagree most?" A: A lot of laborious data entry, followed by math. It might be possible to rig something up for the play-in tourney, though, where I've kept track of who voted for whom.)

Aww, Foujita. Check out the different moods and styles! I can definitely respect that. Moreover, I like 'em.
