If I wind up doing it, I'd only want nominees initially. I would then produce a list to be voted on so people should not suggest someone who already has already been nominated as of now. >>

atta boy, Mark. I second the Butcher's Boy and nominate Tom Perry's series character Jane Whitfield, who helps people disappear; and Stephen Hunter's two generations of war heroes, Bob the Nailer and his daddy Earl Swagger. I can see this brushfire raging unchecked till at least the end of the month when we all should vote.
