Welcome back. This is today's Open Thread, the blog's venue for socializing and sounding off (in appropriate ways!) on the topics of your choice.
Please sign your comments. Please do not post profanity or write racially and sexually explicit remarks. (If you need assistance interpreting these guidelines, check yesterday's Open Thread.)
I, Sara, am filling in for James while he's on holiday. I'll be reading the OT, but if you'd like to contact me about a story idea or anything else, shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for spending time with us today. Have a good one!
