I went with Steve's Starbury article.  Frankly, it was hard to choose, because Jeff and Steve put together a lot of great articles last year.

by the way mods, thanks for posting a range of different voting options.
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

Lol looks like if Steve loses, he has only himself to blame.  If he wrote just one great article instead of a bunch this would be a lot easier.  He's splitting the vote with himself.

Now with Roy, i think it would be funny, if he win's Post of the Year for his Salary Cap FAQ but loses out on Front Page POY (or vice versa).  It would be kinda like Beyonce losing female video of the year, but winning overall video of the year lol (well not really, but you know what I'm saying, and I bet Roy's never been compared to Beyonce before  :P)

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Haha.  I sincerely doubt it.  In terms of front page quality, I rank far, far behind both Steve and Jeff.

I voted for Steve's Starbury article; do you think Beyonce' voted against herself? ;)
