News will happen while I’m away this week. Hopefully, I won’t even know about it. But something is bound to happen that begs for discussion. If and when something happens, tell about it briefly in a comment, along with a link to the full story. The rest of you, talk about it by hitting “reply” to that comment. By the end of the week, we should have a compendium of the week’s news, along with the necessary commentary. That will catch me up when I return to civilization, assuming it can last long enough to be here when I get back.
