Some folks have come to like playing "The Elimination Game" in our comments section for the Renew/Cancel Index posts, now you've got a post all your own to do it in.

If you're among the first people reading this post, and don't know how to play, hang on and I'm sure someone will explain it in the comments soon enough.

Go for it!

Elimination Game folks,

Here it is:

    Toby: He’s required to give Congress information on the State of the Union. If he buys Congress a subscription to the Wall Street Journal, he’s fulfilled his constitutional obligation.

    Elimination Game folks,

    I think I have figured out how to create a page that will not have its comments closed automatically after 60 days.

    Here it is:

    http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/play-the-elimination-game/

    Move your commenting over there and have fun. I will leave commenting going on this post, but it’s going to close after 60 days from the post date like all the rest.

  • Rebecca

    @Bill
