A heckuva column. It’s all about … RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA!!! You’ll surely enjoy it, Shirley. Plus, there may be a second column later in the week! I was going to run “Russia” today, but, as only about six of you have shown up so far, we’ll wait and do it right on a Wednesday.

I’m not sending either of these to TPC as I don’t know what’s going on there. They are free to pick up either (or both) though I tend to suspect my topics are about 4 SD outside the local wheelhouse. If I learn they’re publishing this week/month/year, I may have a special just for them – either about a fox I saw or a baseball game I declined to attend. Serious stuff.
