Mailbag: And This One’s Special

So, you are wondering why the Czar’s mailbag does not feature the usual mail sack photo today? Or perhaps you did not notice? Or more likely you are not even reading the words in this post?

The reason for the change is because we have a very special bit of mail today. World class writer, radio, and star of television Jonathan V. Last took the time to respond to some rabid fan’s sensless gushings for linking to a post on supernovas.

Mr. Last, who is at present the coolest and most intelligent commentator The Weekly Standard has (why, yes, we would solicit competing bribes to change this attribute!), has this to say on the Gormogons:

I read Gormogons as often as I read any blog that doesn’t traffic in bikini shots of Tricia Helfer, so the admiration is most mutual.

This of course means two things: (1) that the Gormogons is without question the most dangerously timely and adroit political and pop culture site in the blogosphere, and (2) we will be changing our mailbag picture today. And possibly again another time.

A special thanks to Mr. Last for making us now more widely read than Perez Hilton’s stuff. All 16 billion Gormogon members are encouraged to click repeatedly on any links to Mr. Last’s online publications, or Such Wrath Shall They Face from Us.

About The Czar of Muscovy

Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia by upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
