We’re trying something new this weekend. Borrowing an idea from The War Zone, this post can serve as the beginning of an open thread where our readers can talk about what happened this week that we have or have not gotten into yet. This is literally an off-topic thread.
The usual rules about commenting apply. And in light of some recent topics, remember, no personal attacks.
So let’s enjoy a wide-ranging debate! (Oh, and send us pics of staging areas. Date, location, and photographer’s name would be nice , but not required.)
