If you're looking for something substantive, read Ralph's minor masterpiece just below this post. Or go read Eric's post over at that other place. Since I'm writing and editing historical things basically around the clock right now, you're getting nothing substantive from me here.

On the other hand, here's a thought: If Obama chooses Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine as his running mate, however will we tell the two tickets apart? Obama/Kaine sounds an awful lot like ObaMcCain.

On the other hand, Obama/Bayh sounds like a shopping website. Yet even that's better than the awful, horrifying, gender-reversed Obama/Nunn. Obama's best bet? Obama/Sebelius -- nobody will be able to pronounce the VP's last name anyway, so he'll be in the clear...

This is an open thread.

I've been corresponding with a blogger who shall remain unnamed, who demanded a spot on my blogroll by virtue of the fact that she's a woman over fifty, and I don't have any women over fifty on my blogroll. I told her that I'd try to remedy this situation, but that I don't do link exchanges, and that I try to focus my blogroll around history sites. She responded by essentially demanding that I de-list BlackAmazon, who doesn't write history, and list her instead. I thought this pretty darned offensive, gave myself the afternoon and evening to think it over, and then told my correspondent where to stuff it.

Apparently this whole thing is going to be a front-page post at Feministe about a month from now. If that actually materializes, I'll have more choice words about it here.
