I’m always looking for new ways to help readers find information related to the topics covered on the blog, so I’m adding a new feature! Each Friday, a new list of noteworthy links will be posted. I hope to include everything from current events to items that slipped through the cracks to sites and stories I think are just plain ol’ interesting.
