Critics' Corner video chat with Simon, Miers

Jeff Miers and I are back from vacation and will be ready and willing to chat on camera today at 1 p.m. Right off the top of my head, I can think of a lot of subjects that beckon: our best of 2011 lists, the current brawl between Time Warner Cable and the MSG network and what it means to Sabres viewers, all manner of things.

So join us if you want to.

Here they are:

Our lemonade stand opens today at 1 p.m. (live video chat) ...

All things being equal (which, as we know, they seldom are), Jeff Miers and I will open our little lemonade stand and chat on camera with readers today beginning at 1 p.m. We'll be ready and willing to deal with all subjects -- well, more or less, anyway.

Hope to hear from everyone then.
