It's quitting time for your regular host. But have no fear, the Slatest ship will sail on through the weekend with Daniel Politi at its helm.
That name will no doubt ring a bell for all you fans of Slate's late, great Today's Papers column, which Daniel wrote from 2006-2009. He's also been a regular part of the Slatest team since then. You can follow him on Twitter @dpoliti.
I'll be back bright and early Monday morning. See you then.
