**Second quarter 2011 MIP poll---what papers to include?**

At the end of each quarter we have a "most valuable paper" poll among the Loop-and-allied QG papers that have appeared in the last three months. In this case April-June 2011.

Can you suggest some to include on the poll?

We generally start with too big a list and have to narrow down quite a lot to get a manageable poll---something like 15 papers is about all we can conveniently handle. Don't be disappointed if you suggest a good paper (one likely to be important or valuable to future research) and it eventually gets bumped from the list.

Thanks in advance for suggestions!

Here are some I thought of, for starters. Some of them may get dropped from the final poll, we're casting a wide net at first.
