Yada, yada, Khan out on the steppes, you know the drill, etc and so on. Chat amongst yourselves! I am rather amazingly slammed with work today/for the next five weeks, so if you get stuck in moderation, I can only promise to fish you out as quick as I can. (Don’t do anything stupid like use a new account or user name – that’s the kiss of moderation DEATH around these parts. Or, at least: It’ll put you in moderation, even if you’ve posted here a gajillion times already).
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.
