Today was a special day. While Puter and Dr. J are running the Castle, the Czar was happy to host GorT, the Mandarin, and the 孔夫子, the Œcumenical Volgi (The Notorious ŒV) here at the Czars dacha in Muscovy. Actually, the Portillos just outside Muscovy. If you are ever in Chicago, and want a taste of the real Chicago, hit a Portillos, wherever you find one. The Czar will take no further email on this topic: Portillos is it.
Anyhow, the four of us enjoyed a real nice meat-based lunch. Bottom line, we are very appreciative to all the readers (famous and not-yet-famous) who make this site one of the best loved and best read political pop culture science and technology sites in existence. In fact, as our math showed, at any given moment (24 hours a day, 365 days a year), on average someone is reading this site. Like you, at this instant.
Some very interesting things are forthcoming that our readers will enjoy. But until then, please know that we love your readership, your tweets, your emails, your glue-sniffing ocelots, and all the rest of it. We have an amazing readership and, evidently, the most loyal fans imaginable.
Yes, you love Puter too. How cool is that?
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 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.
