The Week

Folks I'm haunting the midwest for much of this week (Evanston, Chicago etc.) So I've imported the fam to help out. I'll leave the intros to them. Some of them you know well. (Alyssa Rosenberg, Dwayne Betts, Adam Serwer.) Some of them you may remember from this summer. (Neil Drumming.) And some are new (Evan Narcisse.)

Hijinx will ensue. Treat them well. Remember, it's always your dinner party, never your lunch period.
