Some Weekend Linkage

Ok, I wasn’t able to get to do linkage during the day so in lieu of a Friday post, I’ll make this a weekend post so you can go through these at your leisure. So while I watch some Australian Rules Football, I’ll do a nice links post for you. Let’s begin with John Ourand […]

The middle jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes, takes place this Saturday from the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

Doing Some Tuesday Linkage

I was expecting to be out of the office today, but with the temperatures over 90 in Southern New England, being inside with air conditioning is probably the way to go today. I hope wherever you are, you’re staying cool and away from the sun. I have some links. Georg Szalai of the Hollywood Reporter […]

The Thursday Linkage

So weird to have the 4th of July in the middle of the week. You get the holiday after two work days and then have two work days afterwards. Some of you have the entire week off which is good, but for me, there’s no such thing as a vacation. In fact, I haven’t had […]

Cranking Out Some Friday Megalinks
