The school year is upon us with fall rains, the first changing color in the trees, and the dazed look of a new group of undergraduates arriving in Grand Forks, the capital of my little neighborhood in North Dakotaland. There are many reasons to be cheerful!
The bustle of the week cut into my random web surfing time and impoverished my quick hits and varia, but those that I do have, I’ll share with you.
