What’d We Miss: 10.03.11 Weekly Reader
Someone overslept this morning. Not finger pointing, please. The blame game is a waste of precious air. Take that to the politicians and snippy restaurant patrons. Slow down there, you’re tangent hopping. Fair enough. Let’s just get to what we missed last week.
