[Guest post by hit and run*]
I was going to try and help alleviate the pain and anxiety that accompanies a long absence by Tom Maguire by doing what he would do: combing the New York Times and finding something to post about. Alas, after a few clicks I got a pop-up telling me I had to log in or register. Spoiler Alert: I don't have a subscription.
Why would I? I have Tom Maguire to read the New York Times for me.
Anyway, thwarted in that effort, and determined to spend only minimal energy in the attempt, let's just declare an Open Thread.
MORE: THE ANSWER TO 'IF NOT ME, THEN WHO?' IS... Guy Benson reads the NYT so we don't have to (wait for Mr. Maguire). And it's JustOneMinute fave Paul Krugman, no less.
