Sorry we missed you, but there was such a secret meeting of the minds of the Gormogons in Chicago yesterday, that we could not tell you about it. Or ‘Puter. But GorT, Volgi, and your Czar got together at the Yuet Lung restaurant in downtown Chicago and ran up a ridiculous tab.

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.
