Predictions: Cliff Chart-Topper

From reader Bill Raftery:

As you may recall, earlier this year I did the statistical breakdown of everyone’s 2004 predictions.

I have now the current track for the 2005 batch (in rank order). Unlike last year, I did not divide this year up by joke vs. non joke predictions. There were surprisingly few joke predictions, although some were cheap points.
