Macavity Award nominations

This is weird.  Last November at Bouchercon I was on a short story panel with Craig Faustus Buck, Barb Goffman, Paul D. Marks, Travis Richardson, and Art Taylor.  Today the Mystery Readers International announced the nominees for their Macavity Awards, and look at the short story category below.  Should I feel insulted?  More like: I thought that was a pretty good panel.

Best Mystery Short Story.
Buck, Craig Faustus.  "Honeymoon Sweet."  Murder at the Beach.
Goffman, Barb.  "The Shadow Knows." Chesapeake Crimes: Homicidal Holidays.
