  1. Nice Portlandia reference. +1 to CJ

  2. Did we skip the week with the Back-to-School issue of C&EN? Or just too many to rehash?

    1. Yes, we did skip that week, I blew it. When I get my copy of the back-to-school week issue, I plan to do a full analysis.

  3. I was just in Stevens Point last weekend. It has a beautiful golf course and a low cost of living. What more can you ask for?
