Merry Wednesday, everyone!
This will be a bit brief again. I’m in the middle of a two-day conference, so I’ll be scarce again today. If anyone lights the place on fire, feel free to shoot me an email.
Around the DN since our last open thread:

We come to our media selection.
We all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep vulgar language to a minimum, using spoiler tags if you must
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the head cheese.
