I have a question.  What do we do when we're in the somewhat sticky area of
being related to someone who we think deserves recognition for their work?
Go ahead and write the letter anyway, fully realising that the letter may be
tossed for being biased?  Try to convince someone not related to write the
letter instead?  Just not worry about it and figure someone else will do it?
Considering the fact that we have to encourage people to write letters, I
think we may safely rule out the last, but what about it?  Ideas?  (Yes, this
is currently a hypothetical but may not be for too much longer...)
