Oldenburg! I still remember when some of the stuffier art types got all sniffy about the installation of the shuttlecocks on either side of the Nelson-Atkins, making the museum itself the badminton net. I think they're great!

Sometimes I can't stand myself for liking Oldenburg. But, oh well.

Susan says "Oldenburg. I don't like your examples, but I'm fond of 'The Knife Ship.'"

I like Oldenburg! I'll vote Orcagna though.

DrSchnell, I had come to think of you as more of a reactionary! I'll go with Oldenburg, despite reservations which hardly need be spelled out.

And with all precincts reporting, or at least all the precincts that are gonna report reporting, Oldenburg has 8 votes to Orcagna's 2. And with that, this First Round match comes to a close.
