It's on ... The P. Willie nickname challenge

***update*** Well, it was on. Apparently, The Bee's forum section, in which the vote was located, was corrupted last night and was bringing down our server. Who would corrupt an innocent forum? Who would try to rig an election?I have two suspects in mind -- Karl Rove and Matt Maiocco. Hopefully, this will be resolved (by someone way smarter than me) in a timely manner. Sorry for the snafu
-- Matt Barrows

Ok, I've narrowed the list to five nicknames. Click here to vote for your favorite. The bad news: You must register to vote. The good news: Registering should limit everyone to one vote, which ought to prevent some of the eager beavers out there from stuffing the ballot box. We'll keep the polls open for a few days at which point we'll begin the inevitable debate over who originally came up with the winning entry ....
