Open Thread Friday

The upgrade is proceeding but rather than shut down everything, I've decided we'll continue to post but we may lose some comments, just fyi.

Here's a joke to start your weekend:

A young man, hired by a supermarket, reported for his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said, "Your first job will be to sweep out the store."

"I once had a diary promoted to the front page on Daily Kos," the young man said under his breath, thinking the manager wouldn't hear.

"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know that," said the manager. "Here, give me the broom, I'll show you how."
