It also featured me on facebook asking people about who they support for President, and why. So far it's been a (mostly) civil discussion between people with widely different beliefs. Which is something that I love.

it's not "Some weird relative" and "a friend" going at each other. It's folks I know, and like, who just don't happen to agree on some stuff. Which is OK, because there are things that I like and agree on with each of them - and some things that I *don't* agree on. But I like hearing what they have to say on subjects, even if I don't come away with the same conclusions.

It's what I like in my own life, and it's why Idol is the way that it is. I want all sorts of people to be able to come in and speak their minds about things - and write what *they* want to write. I want to be able to experience that, and thought "Maybe other people would like that too!" Nearly 10 years later, and the experiment seems to have been working out pretty well so far! ;)

Vote - Second Chance Gauntlet - Week 4

A few words from clauderainsrm:


I said there would be 4 weeks for Second Chance. 4 chances to get back into the game (get into it for the first time for some).

This is Week 4.

After this, all eliminations are for “keeps”. We are riding this rail straight down the mountain.

Which makes this moment special. You, the voters, have one more shot to determine who will be flying through the air as we careen off the side of a cliff. You get to decide who will be sitting back and watching the action unfold.

4 people will move forward this week, joining the ranks of our Week 13 contestants. They will be writing an entry for this week, and taking part in the polls. Which doesn’t give them a very big window of time between when they know they are taking part, and when they have to get something in!

But that’s the risk you take.

4 contestants move forward. 5 contestants join the Home Game. Read. Comment and Vote to give your favorites one more shot!

The poll closes Thursday, March 10th at 9pm EST

Good luck to everyone!
