This week, a deep, thought-provoking poll that really matters. One that paws like a toothless rat against the marshmallowy film of time. Everybody knows drawing revisions are better represented as… what? Letters or numbers? How about letters and numbers? Should we even have a choice?

    An onslaught of outrage, agreement and opinion ensued. What’s your opinion? Let us know in the comments and win the joy of feeling like you just told everyone else WHAT’S UP!
