Happy Tuesday, y’all. As I type this, there is a lot going on that we could talk about, obviously. But let’s keep it “light” and just talk about a few stories that were in the news this week. Yes, we’ll have to mention Russia. But the good news is, I’ve been given approval by the Automox Party Department to allow you all to start a drinking game based around those mentions. If it’s past noon and you see me mention “Russia”, do what you will. :)
