Not too much new to report on the Headline of the Year contest. We've now had four voting threads so far, which can be found here:
December * January * February * March
Next month I'm going to do the first quarter voting threads for subtabs: sports, geek, business, politics, and entertainment. Those will just take a bit of time to set up, but the time spent now is saving me a ton of time at the end of the year. Plus it's nice to take a look at the early candidates if you're a tab wonk.
