We've had quite a week, haven't we? From The Potato Headed Republicans to the American Rescue Act, we've covered the waterfront with the help of 28+ bloggers doing what they do best: distilling, analyzing, reporting the news in ways large and small. [Chef's kiss!]

Annie Asks Your presents the last of a four-part series on Saving Democracy. The previous three posts are linked at the bottom of this fourth post, and is definitely worth your time to read the entire series.

Speaking of saving democracy, Juanita Jean wants to get rid of the Senate's filibuster.

Strangely Blogged recaps the week!

As only he can, Shower Cap tells us Other Tales of Terror!

Bonus Track: Because we're all about the laughter, Open Culture presents the best of John Cleese comedy as selected by John Cleese!

Thank you for letting me be part of your week. I hope to return soon!
