earth-06-june.gif…to get their basic formulae down, so I’m not terribly surprised that it’s taking us a while to figure out how to do our Awards. Last night we proclaimed that they’d be called the Halo Awards. Today we’re thinking that we’ll also include Polaris Awards (we really like the idea of Polaris), and possibly Omega Awards.

So here’s what we’re thinking today.

The Halo Awards will for the most part be awarded posthumously. That opens the door to a wide variety of great people whom we’d like to honor. In very rare occasions we might present a Halo to a living person. But as a matter of course living persons will be awarded a Polaris Award.

As for the tentative Omega Award, we’ll have to think about that one.

We’ll keep you posted. And as we say, it took the Catholic Church several centuries to sort everything out, so do bear with us!
