With this vote, the outcome is potentially in doubt; if Steve ranks L >
A, then Bdale has the casting vote between L and N. If Steve ranks A >
L, or does not vote, then N is the winner. [Presumably in the first
case, Bdale will select N, but I'm not sure if that's enough to call the
vote no longer in doubt.]

He was wrong. Nature abhors dimensional abnormalities, and seals them
neatly away so that they don't upset people. Nature, in fact, abhors a
lot of things, including vacuums, ships called the Marie Celeste, and
the chuck keys for electric drills.
