	I still like the idea of a bearded symposium and a beardless symposium.

	To get these started, use the current AIS Ballot award winners. 
 So as not to lose out on the old favorites, allow for something like 
ten write-ins.  Then, in subsequent years, eliminate the write-ins 
since they are so diverse and hard to count.  The old favorites 
would get on the ballot with the write-ins.

	We have discussed this in years past, and there are lots of 
ideas in the archives.  Remember the 'modest proposal?'  That 
could start your search.
