Sometimes following the news is just too much. Or just too bizarre. What's happened over the last five days?
Nominations and speeches and rallies capturing us and surprising us and being scaled back.
Hurricanes and levees and the traditional reckless endangerment of weathermen.
All manner of revelations leaking out of Alaska.
All hell breaking loose in the Atlantic.
That's a lot for a holiday weekend.
But since like many a freelancer I am actually laboring today, for now my time crunch will spare you a blogging dump of my spinning mind. It's enough to say: Happy Labor Day, everyone. Stay safe, Gulf and Atlantic shore residents.
