This is the fifth round of the Title Writing Prompt Challenge. For them not familiar with the challenge, a quick summary: three writers offer the fruit of their labor and inspiration based on a given title.
The Round 5 Title — Rainman — was chosen by Gary. Perry will choose the title for the next round.
Assuming everyone has read the three stories titled Rainman, this is where you get to vote for your favorite. If you’ve not read the stories, links are provided below.
As a reminder, the writing challenge has no restrictions and the stories span a wide gamut of genres. The majority of the stories fall in the G and PG rating range with a few perhaps pushing into the soft R-rating. Those ratings are guidelines but they are subjective. If you find a story disturbing because of the topics, language, and/or plot points, stop reading and move on to the next one. The same thing goes if you find yourself not interested in finishing a story. It may seem like obvious advice, but these days many people go out of their way to experience outrage (and then complain about it).
The stories can be found at the following links (including a blurb from each writer):

A puzzling crime, interpersonal conflicts, and a touch of woo. It’s all in a few days’ work for Officer Wright.

Rainman has a job uniquely suited for his despicable disposition: he hunts people. Specifically, he hunts down “abortion-seeking” women. He meets his match when he encounters a 400-year-old witch named Maud LeFaye – a midwife dedicated to women’s right to choose.

It’s an epidemic! Autism Spectrum Disorder is running rampant, and nobody is saying a word. Statistics show that half of our children will be diagnosed with some form of it by the year 2025. Why the silence? Where is Fauci? Is the government involved? One girl pulls back the curtain to see why she is so different from her classmates. You’ll be surprised by what she finds.
For this round, the voting will close in about two weeks, Noon on Tuesday, August 16, 2022.
Votes are nice, but the writers also appreciate reader comments (often, more so than votes . . . but, you know, they also like votes).
A new set of titles will be offered shortly.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
