Congratulations to Isabel Lugo, a third-year PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania, who was the first person to come up with a solution to the number of unique winning scenarios in the electoral college, as well all the people who helped Isabel to get there and confirm the result. To my surprise, this became the most commented-upon thread ever at, and is quite possibly my favorite.

In unrelated news that probably isn’t quite worth a thread unto itself, I will be a guest tomorrow morning on CNN’s American Morning with John Roberts. The segment will air live at roughly 8:15 AM Eastern. Postponed because of CNN’s tornado coverage. This is why one should always be very cautious about touting a live TV gig. But we’re trying to get rescheduled for tomorrow.
