For the past two weeks I have been working through this 700 page history of Central Asia. I'm a bit more than halfway through, but I'm far enough along to be amused every time I see the word "mogul" used like this in the popular press.

On the other hand, I would pay money to see Jeff Bezos dressed up like Akbar the Great. Not that Jeff needs my money.
