Webtacular World Issue #130, May 29, 2016

Greetings Webtaculators! I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day Weekend! Remember, it’s not just a time to revel in three days of not having to work; it’s supposed be for taking time to remember those who fell in battle while fighting in our wars. I hope you all were able to do that. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
