Default [Dixonary] Rd. 2900: Vote for pogonology!

Hi all,

I'm sorry to be a little late posting (and for forgetting to post a
progress report), but you know how it is when you have the deal...it is
always the worst time!

But the word must have been stimulating because there are 16 definitions to
choose from this time, only one of which approaches reality, more than I've
seen in a long time.

Please choose your two favorites and vote by the deadline of 11 p.m. EDT on
Wednesday June 13 which is, I think, 3 a.m. GMT, for all you early birds.

Happy voting!
