The enclosed email gives me the frightening thought
that many of you might consider me to be an even
bigger dope than I am.
A while ago I predicted that Supreme Sultan would
win the Dykes in a landslide. I did not mean to
imply that I wanted it to, or that I would vote
I don't and I won't.

I usually settle for "interesting." But I like it a lot,
and it has a special place in my heart because it won me
my first blue ribbon.

I agree completely.

You should be proud.

Once again, I regret the incorrect impression my email made.
If anything I am biased _towards_ SAs, not against them. I am
very active on the Region 15 committee for the next spring trek,
which is featuring SAs. The _only_ thing that would bother me
about Thornbird or Conjuration winning the Dykes is that that
might reduce the probability of Mesmerizer winning, and I
consider Mesmerizer to be the best of the bunch (at least as
they grow around here).
