Jim, If you will notice my last post I agree with you, but we are overwhelmed. Even my wife agrees with the majority. Among her arguments is that a day begins at midnight or 12:00 AM, not 12:01. As you may have noticed, here in Chicago they did not wait that minute to begin celebrating the new year.

To get on topic, I have all the results tabulated, but wanted to wait a few days so I would have lists from rara avians who may be away from the holiday. Sneak preview: Chandler is just nipping Hammett with no other author close to the big two. It is pretty close for 3 - 7. Mark
