Ta-Nehisi is around, but no open thread appears to be forthcoming! And so, I give you one here.
My cleaning is done, but my mind is elsewhere, as I set up the kitchen (different sets of dishes, pots, pans, etc, etc for the holiday) and cook and check in with folks back home and… like that. However! I’m around-ish, not like yesterday. As always, if you get stuck in moderation, I’ll free you soon!
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.
