The Condorcet Loser

Dear Job,

Nicolas de Caritat,
marquis de Condorcet
We pitted your submission "Properties of Voting Procedures" head-to-head with every other submission and it did not win any of those battles.  We have dubbed your paper the "Condorcet Loser."  Sorry to have to let you know this; it must be hard to hear.  Also, we are rejecting your submission.  But we hear you are used to withstanding hardships (such as your children's tragic death in that house-collapse, or the time you were covered with boils) so I doubt you will complain much about this.

Regards,
Caleb
