Monday morning Open Thread

I must be very wicked, because it hasn’t been a peaceful few days, nor has this morning been peaceful.  Sitting down, reading, thinking, and writing haven’t been a part of my agenda.  (I’m being a little dishonest there, for literary purposes, of course, because I actually had some pleasant moments this weekend, which seems inconsistent with wickedness.  Even the pleasant times, though, kept me away from reading and writing.)

While I continue to be busy for the next couple of hours, please feel free to share your thoughts and news stories.
