Managing Editor Alex Blaze is flying back to the States on Monday to visit family and friends; he'll be in New York, Indianapolis and DC over the next few weeks. We're going to have a meetup while he's in DC, but if you'd like to have one in New York or Indy, let us know and we'll put something together.
Whenever I leave for an extended period, we name a new 'Bilerico' to carry on in my absence with regular posts that set the general tone for the site that week. Alex, however, is the second in command and you know what that means - he always gets overlooked even though he's the guy who makes the trains run on time and writes two or three posts a day.
To help fill all of Alex's normal posts, contributor Mark King has graciously stepped up and volunteered to be "the new Alex" for this week. You know and love Mark - as is readily visible from his posts' statistics. (He's one of our contributors who is most shared on Facebook!)
What can you expect while Alex's snark is missing? Mark will be stretching his boundaries a bit and stepping outside of his normal gripping personal stories to include some timely news-oriented posts and, of course, some sexy stuff too. (Hey, it IS Bilerico!)
Do me a favor though - don't tell Mark that this will be work and he won't win a car. Let's just keep that our little secret.
