"A Renoir. I have three, myself. I had four, but ordered one burned...It displeased me." -- Doctor Doom

"It's not, 'Oh, they killed Sue Dibney and I always loved that character,' it's 'Oh, they broke a story engine that could have told a thousand stories in order to publish a single 'important' one.'" -- John Seavey

The Liberal party held a leadership race about a year ago - they got every delegate in one conference center, had 3 or 4 ballots wherein the lowest-finishing candidate was eliminated each time, and had a new leader after about 6 hours. No opportunity for the kooks from one province to exercise undue influence, for people to scrutinize and panic over individual votes - just for people to think for 10 minutes, vote, and be done with it.
