At first, I, too, found it surprising that only one member of the jury is a family member. However, I believe and trust that the other twelve lean heavily on her counsel. I'm confident that Mrs. Grant-Berry, as the LMDC Families Advisory Council representative, is/has devoted herself to conveying the families wishes throughout this arduous and challenging undertaking.

It is inevitable that this competition remain political. The world is watching. And what if a finalist designer is French? I would hope that, like any other stereotype, that that topic would not even be considered by the media or anyone else to be a relevant question. I know that whoever is chosen as the finalists deserve a professional respect as a designer. I'm certain that that hypothetical designer would have entered his/her heart, mind, and soul into this project.

To clarify, I am not saying they deserve notoriety or fame. That will, more than likely be, an inescapable side product of this historic competition.

William, thanks for dedicating your time to your site, and sharing it with us. While I don't share your views on some things, I still appreciate your ideas. As to everyone else who has posted here, it's been an interesting debate/s.

As always, good luck to the jurors who have to choose the most respectful and suitable of designs. I'm sure the stress of their decisions is wearing.
