The Weekly Town Crier

YeOldeTownCrierDon’t call it a comeback . . . well, I guess you could call it a comeback, seeing as how I haven’t done any version of the Weekly Town Crier for a very long time.

So welcome to the Weekly Town Crier’s comeback! This is where I gather mildly interesting articles and such to suck away time from your real life and the things you should actually be doing. It’s all part of a vast conspiracy to keep the population from rising up and paying attention for a change. Who knows what might happen if the sleeping giant was akoken.

Some weeks there will probably be more weeks. Other weeks there may be less. Deal with it.

Welcome one, welcome all.
