I agree that a letter of explanation should be sent and that said letter
should contain sufficient citations as to why this or that person deserves
the award. However, having gone out to Northshield's web site and seen the
online form, there is sufficient room to write the aforementioned letter.
Also, a form does not preclude writing an additional letter that may be
larger in scope than a form allows room for. I agree with His Grace Logan
that one should be willing to step up and say exactly why a person should
receive this award, and I agree with you that a mere form with check boxes
would not allow this.

To that end:

Duke Logan,

I have seen the Northshield form and as soon as I rebuild my computer (don't
ask <muttergrumbleWin95BillGatesmotherlessswine>) I will draft a similar
document and send this to TRMs and Rabah. Until then I remain,
