I will stay with Kline and his almost-calligraphy. I thoroughly disapprove of Kirchner's treatment of cats.

I'm not too keen on either, but I'll go with Kline. I am not a robot. Mrs.5000 does not control my thoughts.

Kline, I guess.

It's Kline, we guess. Decisively -- a 10-5 margin -- but without a surge of enthusiasm, as far as I can tell. I am not predicting any surprises in Kline's upcoming grudge match.
