Good Morning Kossacks and Welcome to Morning Open Thread (MOT)
We're known as the MOTley Crew and you can find us here every morning at 7:00 am Eastern (and perhaps sometimes earlier!). Feel free to volunteer to take a day - permanently or just once in awhile. With the Auto Publish feature you can set it and forget it. Sometimes the diarist du jour shows up much later: that's the beauty of Open Thread...it carries on without you! Volunteer in the comment threads.

I accidently posted this video yesterday, and in the brief time that it was up hannah attempted to leave this comment:
I am so glad to see people talking about money. It is material, a figment of the imagination made tangible, much as the sounds we utter as speech are made visible and tangible via written symbols. Or should that be tangible and visible, since the touching of fingers to paper or key-board comes first?Thank you, for the great comment, hannah!
In the beginning was the word and then it was carved in stone. Both the Egyptians and the Maya did that. Think what a leap that was to render sound in tangible symbols!
Grab your cup and pull up a chair. What is on your mind this morning?
