The Commissioner REALLY comes out of hiding

There are questions and comments that need to be responded to.  It is time to face them.

Too bad! I wanst able to join this because I was out of town. That a bummer. Anyway, who wont? No list yet? 
The Commissioner responds:
Yeah.  Sorry you were out of town, Dots.  Here at GAC we do have a Leader Board.  It is currently up to date.  The contest doesn't officially end until Friday, September 27, 2013.  After that, scores will be verified and a winner declared.  Please check back then.

Welcome back to normal. If there is such a thing. 
The Commissioner responds:
Thanks.  I don't think that there is, but it is something to strive for.

The Commissioner responds:
OOOOOOHHHHH!  OOOOOOHHHHH!  OOOOOOHHHHH!   Yes, the Ryan Stiles is an awesome card.

Out of curiosity (and sure, I do have a vested interest in the answer), why is it that Bats back minis, which are more common (1:203) get more points than printing plates (1:594)? 
The Commissioner responds:
Because I transposed last year's points in correctly.  Scoring in Gint-A-Cuffs is a bit arbitrary.  But, looking back at last year's points the plates carried more weight.  My ruling is that the the 2013 Print Plates will now be worth 27 points.  That is the same as last year.  I will not adjust the points for the Bats back minis.  Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me, either.  But you just got a 4 point bump.  The Commissioner has ruled.

very kind things about the photo of my daughter.. 
The Commissioner responds:
Thanks.  That's flattery, folks.  Not bribery.

Speaking of bribery, here's one that came to my email:

You turn around. In the shadows of the alley before you, you see a man in a large trench coat and a fedora. The collar on his coat is popped up, concealing most of his face. The giant bulge in the front of his coat suggests the presence of a tommy gun.

"Hey, buddy. Yeah, you. The Godfather sent this, along with his favor."

The unsavory character tosses a brown paper sack near your feet. You glance down at the package and look back up, but the man is nowhere to be seen.

Shrugging, you pick up the sack and unfurl the top and look inside. Neatly wrapped is a box with a clear plastic top, containing a delicious piece of pie. Who doesn't like pie? There's also a note that reads:

'There's more where this came from. Just let me know where to have my boys deliver it.'

'P.S. - This is most definitely a bribe.'

Hmmm.  Pie is good.  But does the GG know my favorite kind?
