Ta-Nehisi is clearly around and posting, but he’s two hours late on the open thread, and here I am, just getting back to my desk. So, just in case the folks need it: Consider this thread open! I’ll lead with dmf’s latest video offering which, I hasten to point out, really happened. It was songified, but the words of the prayer — all of the words of the prayer — actually came out of the pastor’s mouth. Boogity Boogity.
Also: Hey guess what? Nicholas Kristof tweeted a link to this blog yesterday — from Tunisia! “Why’s that?”, you say? Because I emailed him about the information included in yesterday’s post, and he decided to help Troy Davis out. Please, do likewise. Read the post (that’ll take about 60 seconds), watch the video (73 seconds) and then sign the Amnesty petition (30 seconds). Two and a half minutes, and you will have helped save an innocent man from execution.
