One of the commenters noted that the old 538 blog archive at the New York Times does not include our comments. This is sad. We had quite an entertaining and sometimes provocative dialogue over the years. Now it’s as if we never existed at all. I don’t know if Nate has peeked in on this blog or not but, Nate; if you’re out there and can read us, please restore the comments in the archive. It can’t really hurt anything, can it? I mean, sure, it takes up a few gigabytes but don’t relegate us to the island of misfit toys over a little computer space.
Hey, by the way, get somebody from make-up to look at your hair before you go on Rachel’s show next time. All I could focus on was how that little lock of hair was poking up.
