Everyone, do your research now. Make sure that the names you put in that ballot really deserve to be there. Our cynicism and general feeling of despair might allow us to think otherwise, but our votes do matter, if only for the simple reason that we won’t allow them to NOT matter.

Some links to start you off, though I’m sure there are some more out there:

It’s going to be tough choosing my bets, and I’m not even guaranteeing right now that I can fill up the twelve slots, but as I’ve said before, it won’t be for lack of trying.
