Well, they do both start with "tri"
Y'know, now that the election season is over and we're recovering from the caustic effects of all those horrid political ads, we're feeling kinda touchy-feely. We want a break from competition. We want to live in a world where everyone's a winner!
So, taking Indecision 2006 to a whole new level, we're pleased to announce that the mental_floss Tribune will actually be the mental_floss Triumvirate. Mike Landau, Tucker Steele, and Lyssa are your new watchdogs, your reverse-ombudsmen, your fearless leaders. In the event of a member's impeachment or of total decimation of the governmental structure, "Danzilla," who entered the race a bit late (yesterday), will take over as either the replacement or as Supreme Dictator. Mike/Tucker/Lyssa -- we'll be calling on you for advice pretty soon, so take a page from the Boy Scouts and be prepared. Also, go on and start bickering over who gets to be the Henry Clay figure, because that could take a while to resolve.
