He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side; if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion.

Pip pip! Cheerio!

Well, the Profile Picture Contest drew to a close with little fanfare on Saturday. And the winner received his prize of a box of brownie mix with even less fanfare in the bottom floor of the library next to my locker a few days ago! And the winner is:

“Sir Josh, Lord of Schmedbury” (my title) by David Hansen

David Hansen - Cheerio

The runner up:
“There Is No Try” (also my title) by Susanna Hansen


David is now the proud owner of a box of brownie mix. Susanna, sorry, I don’t know if you get any prize aside from great glory and honor on the Internet. I took a picture of David in his moment of glory, but it was on his camera phone so he’ll have to get the picture out to everyone.

I could probably be blamed for playing favorites, since it is two of my siblings who ended up with this lofty commendation. Well, blame away! But either way, I now have the coolest assortment of profile pictures ever!

Here’s how I’m going to do things: as there were four contestants, I am going to use the next month to highlight their work by using one of their submissions as my facebook profile picture for a week. I’ll go in this order: Mark, Clayton, Susanna, David.

By the way, did you notice that all of the contestants have last names ending in -son/-sen? Yeah, wacky. Sort of a homestar runner-ish thing, isn’t it?

    Oh poo. I completely forgot about your blog, Josh.

    I love your online persona, by the way. I don’t know if I ever told you that.

    Remember Radio Free Monticello? I wanted to post the following on it, but realized that it no longer exists… oh well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iPHvGt2iRI&feature=email
