Still, I don't feel that Don Rosa should have an Award for
*this* particular story, when so many other, *better*
stories didn't get an Award. Does anyone know how many and
which of Rosa's stories were nominated for an Eisner
Award, throughout the years?

"The Black Knight GLORPS again!" is nice, but not great. 
It's the only Disney story that got nominated for this 
year's Eisner Awards, which suggests that, if nothing 
else, it's this year's best Disney story. And *that* would 
suggest that this year's Disney stories simply weren't 
very great. It would also suggest that most of this year's 
short stories weren't very great, either, if "GLORPS" made 
it into the top six.
