    You know, I came to these finals thinking that I would have no trouble picking this round. Ha ha.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    My true favorites aren't here, though, so I have to settle for choosing one of these.

    There have been many great short stories King has written over his long and prolific career. You can't include every one. Where's "Survivor Type"? "The Ledge"? "Quitters, Inc."? And so on.

    Jean, what do the bears like, "All That..."?
