We’re back with some links. During this holiday week, I won’t be posting as much. I have some work to finish before Friday so the posting will be a bit sporadic. You will get links at the beginning of the day, but probably not at night.
If media links are available on the 4th of July, then I will post the megalinks. We’ll see if the media writers across the country do their stories on Thursday or Friday.
Let’s get to the links for today.
