Again, I was not attempting to imply that St. Peter is a (mindless) 
drone (Mechanical in nature?  Perhaps.  He's a bit of a machine after 
all) but I still don't approve of any whittling.  Too many good entries 
have been left out.  I propose (probably already proposed) that people 
still get 6 votes, to place on whatever they like, but that they be 
allowed to vote on all entries or a zero or something if they think they 
all suck.
