You know the drill! The Khan appears to be out on the steppe, leaving the Golden Horde to fend for itself in matters conversating. And so fend we shall!
One note: I’ll be at my desk only intermittently this afternoon. If you’re new here and your first comment gets sent to moderation (or if you make that most frequent of errors and use a different user name all of a sudden), I promise to get you out as soon as I can!
Standard FYI clause: My rule of thumb is that I wait for two hours after Ta-Nehisi would usually open a thread (roughly noon, EST), and if none is forthcoming, I put one up here.
