With respect, Russ, that's bassackwards.  Collectively if not individually,
the members of the list have far more free man-hours than you do.  You
should pass submissions straight on to the list and let one or more of
us shoot them down if they are obvious losers.

This will make for a slight wastage when one or more list members are typing
rejections at the same time, but I think that's better than injecting
an extra delay into an already slow and painful process.
