I hate Top 10 lists ("In Search of the Perfect Top 10 List," by Robert Hilburn, Dec. 27).
They're not only boring to read, they also take up valuable newspaper space. Who cares what 19 pretentious jerks thought about this year's music ("The Consensus: U2 With a Narrow Win")?
That's why I'm asking all Calendar readers to participate in a Top 10 list that rates all 19 critics that appeared in The Times.
But there are problems with intelligent Top 10 lists like the one suggested above. The numbers 1 through 10 alone don't adequately describe the relative inequalities of all these people.
