countdown to new year's: and the winner is ...

Congratulations to Bob Kaufman, the winner of the 2013 Countdown to New Year's Challenge!
First, thanks to all who voted in the Round 4 poll! To those who voted near or after the end of the open poll period (it appears to have stopped taking results at around 11:50pm on the 31st), my apologies. According to the counted poll results, Bob Kaufman and Kenneth Koch tied with three votes apiece, while Jorge Luis Borges came in second with one vote. I did get a few emailed votes (you clever readers!) from some who couldn't vote in the poll; unfortunately, it was still an even split between Bob and Kenneth! The final decision came down to a rather unceremonious coin toss ... which landed in Bob Kaufman's favor.
 
Stay tuned for the winner of the Countdown to New Year's Grand Prize Book Drawing! A big "THANK YOU!" to all who voted, contributed comments, shared the event, and beyond. I hope you each have a prosperous and joy-filled New Year!
