Wow...Jim Murphy, Nancy Farmer, Candace Fleming and upcoming judges have their work cut out for them. They are leapfrogging over each other, kissed by fate to find the lost, get real in their march, stay in the game show spirit, wend their way through the dust kicked up by the peanut gallery in a jazzy but positive way, and graphically face the comments and commentator who are probably muttering after each decision, "if you can't get justice...get even." I think we all can make peace with the final decisions though because, agree or not, the reasoning is solid and fascinating to read.
If you are not making a daily stop here to watch the results, you are missing one of the best games in the kidlit- and library-blogosphere. Be there or be square!
