Friday, Friday (non-Jessica Black Edition); or Weak In Review

It's Friday and we here at DI would like to take a quick time out from our usual duties* to say welcome to our newest readers.  [We feverishly pour over the daily traffic stats in the vain hope that we are actually building something like an audience.  Usually not. -ed.]  Some of you have found our little blog all the way from Macedonia, Romania, Pakistan, and even more exotic places like Canada.  Cheers to all of you. Feel free to use the comments to register your thoughts on our posting, but please be kind, thoughtful, and considerate of others.  The internets have feelings, too.

Next week we have some fun stuff planned for you, dear readers:
  • Probably some kind of Olympics wrap-up, or some other silly speculations
  • Link Hive! #7, scary edition
  • Not one quixotic post about politics, but...
  • ...Two quixotic posts about politics and the Presidential campaigns
Enjoy your weekend, wherever you are.  Ciao.

(Ok now?)  [I guess. -ed.]

*These include mostly lazily "analyzing" outdated news, trying unsuccessfully to sound snarky, failing to change the world, Quixotism, and generally droning on self-importantly.
