Friends, readers, and cat enthusiasts: I’m sorry to say that I won’t be around much for the next 48 hours. I’m off to an undisclosed location to see one of my old Marine sergeants get commissioned as a second lieutenant. For security purposes, I can’t say where I’m going, but I’ve provided some subtle clues in the banner image.
Anyway, I’ve assembled a lineup of guest writers that includes SB Nation’s Jon Bois and Uproxx contributors Danger Guerrero and Slothrop to keep this place from getting cobwebs, so you won’t have to go without television news. I’ll be back Friday afternoon, and I’ll be poking my head in from time to time to make sure everyone’s behaving. I don’t want to see ANYONE in here wearing pants, you understand?
