You have the stories. I think you have The Voice to win. Best of all, 
you don't have the vicious ("killer") instinct to beat the opposition 
into the ground and dance on his/her grave — you're more likely to spend 
much of your winnings shaking the hands and buying us all a drink!

Speaking of stories, here's a challenge to those of you who'd like to 
improve their Irish (I left S--L out of the loop when sending first time 
around, but, looking at it afterwards, I see it actually contained three 
stories). Let me know how you get on with that.
