"¢ We've elected the winners of our 'Super Tuesday' contest. Chris Coultas (Quayle '00), Roger Mullins (Grandpa Munster for Governor of New York), Kellie (for the killer graphics on the Jeb for Governor '02 site), Ashley Keen (punXfordean) and PJ (Join Arnold!) all get copies of Anything for a Vote. I'll be in touch to get your addresses. And on a day The Wayback Machine is being slightly more cooperative, I'll take screenshots of all the entries and assemble one big nostalgic post.

"¢ Know any talented writers who happen to be in college or graduate school? We're looking for contributors for the next mental_floss College Weekend. Have them send an email to collegeweekend@gmail.com, and include a brief bio, a list of 3-5 story or quiz ideas, and any writing sample they think we'll find impressive. If we like what we read, we'll be in touch.
