Ok, so Ta-Nehisi is clearly blogging up a storm and even though the time stamps indicate pre-scheduling, he’s interacting in comments, so he’s genuinely AROUND, but no open thread! And when I asked on Twitter – no reply!
So what the hell. Open thread, for those who may be in need, until TNC gets around to it.
Standard FYI clause: My rule of thumb is that I wait for 2 hours after Ta-Nehisi would usually open a thread (roughly noon, EST), and if none is forthcoming, I put one up here.
