Toledo has the better opera house, but other than that they are virtually indistinguishable.

in violation of our consensus that we not share the specifics of our votes, i have pasted mine below, in camouflage, hereby openly flouting forum etiquette and human decency:

if it's before midnight, you should be ashamed of yourself.

ass.

this sort of behavior is no more than we have come to expect from you. still, I am deeply disappointed.

your mention of flouting etiquette and decency really got my hopes up.

i'm glad you're going on public record casting aspersions on a masterpiece.

you are not on the side of history.

what's this really about? are we going to be subjected to more shameless fawning and hagiography over 32, a "poem" that only succeeds in any linguistic context because it is both "awful" and "offal"?

So typical. Your barbaric blunted sensibilities are incapable of appreciating the delicate nuances of number 32; thus you feel compelled to batter it with the neanderthal club of your so-called wit. By all means, share with us your rhapsodies on number 28, that vulgar bit of donkey dung with which you are so enraptured. We could all use a laugh.

I want my vote back. Nobody told me there was a Lyndon Larouche entry.

pfft. William has been tediously touting the imaginary merits of that trumpery piece of tripe since page 6 of this thread at least.

VOTE_BOT's work is done here.

Poetry is what is fine about your kind. You shouldn't treat it so cavalierly.
