Apologies for the dearth of posting both today and this week, but we have solid excuses: we’re still doing press for the Alcoholics Anonymous piece (as evidenced by the above clip from today’s The Brian Lehrer Show), and we’re saving our choicest cuts for next week’s guest stint over at Ta-Nehisi Coates’ blog. Yes, we’ve been called up from the blogosphere’s equivalent of Single A ball all the way to the majors. Hope you’ll follow us over there starting on Monday, and forgive our forthcoming dropping of the royal “we”—something about it just won’t vibe with Coates’ more intimate tone. For a week, then, we will not be khans, but rather simple farmers on the intellectual steppe, doing our best to fill incredibly massive shoes. Keep your fingers crossed that our nerves won’t get the better of us.
