I saw the thread OY. OMG came to mind.
I am curious, though. Why the high cost for a printed copy? Did Sandy have it printed through a vanity press?

Perhaps real gold lettering on quality perfumed watermarked paper specially delivered with flowers and chocolates.
I really don't know. Perhaps it is to get people to just download and it and print it on their own computer's printer, which is free.

I like the way he spells out the players as the good, the bad, and the ugly. And, of course, one could substitute ARDA for the RDO. All in all, well done.
