Did you ever notice that great thoughts turn to crap once you
hit "Send"? Maybe it's just me.
If one contest is decided by a margin of 60, and two other contests
are decided by a margin of 4 each, only a net of 8 preferences would
be overturned by reversing the two contests, whereas 60 preferences
(net) would be overturned by reversing the one. I had neglected to
consider the minority vote in those contests.
