CMC Students Start "Fantasy Congress"

For those who have no idea how many yards Peyton Manning threw for on Sunday but can cite every legislative amendment proposed by Senator Richard Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, the game could be an alternative to the prevailing fantasy sports culture.

This has Claremont written all over it. Congrats to the four Claremont McKenna College students featured in yesterday’s New York Times on their clever new invention "Fantasy Congress".

    From what I’ve read elsewhere, picks (i.e. legislators) earn points for proposing and passing legislation. It would be cool libertarian-leaning Congress-people could earn points for NOT proposing or passing legislation and earn bonus points for blocking others from doing so!
