Good morning! Hope you all had a lovely/relaxing/fun holiday weekend. I’m still in Missouri for a couple more days visiting my parents/ swimming in the pool/ planting flowers on the deck/ eating burgers and drinking beer. As such, posting will be light this week. I have a moving guest essay coming up later today from a woman whose fiancé was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer before their wedding and given less than a year and a half to live (spoiler: it’s been eight years and he’s still alive). In the meantime, feel free to use this as an open thread to talk about your weekend or what your upcoming travel plans are or anything you might need advice about or whatever you want to discuss. For anyone who needs a column to read this morning, here are a few popular ones from years past that you may have missed the first time around:
And, of course, there’s always the forums.
