Is that 2 bills per mention? Or 2 bills per session, or 2 bills per semester?

It reminds me of when some cross town DJ was offering $100 to anyone that
got Howard Stern to mention his nameon the air. Howard's people confirmed
that he had indeed made the offer, then someone called and he proceeded to
mentioned the DJ's name 50 or 60 times. Federal law required the radio
station to pay out.

That is like trying to perform brain surgery with garden tools.
