Summer School

More

Next week, I enter the phantom zone for six weeks. I will still be transmitting a few times per day, but mostly, I'm going to leave you in the hands of a team of artists, writers and public intellectuals the likes of which shall make all other bloggers tremble--or at least link a little more.


Anyway, I'm really excited because some of my favorite people to read have agreed to do a week stint. The roster includes, among others, Alyssa Rosenberg, Spencer Ackerman, Brendan Koerner, Thomas Sugrue, Ayelett Waldman, Julian Sanchez and Mark Kleiman. Also two of our own commenters, Cynic and Andy In Texas, are going to do a stint. I expect it to be awesome, and I'm confident that the crowd here will live up to it's billing and treat everyone with respect.

As excited as I am about the line-up, I have to say that I am most excited about Mr. Len agreeing to contribute. My sense is that everyone will not understand why, and that's OK. It's gonna be an awesome rest of the summer.
