Greetings Webtaculators. As the wheels continue to fall off the bus that is the Trump Presidency, the world continues. Also, having family who can help remove a tree and build a fence is a very good thing.
On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: It’s Collusion, Then

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)

TECH THING OF THE WEEK (7 min. read)
What: The Best From CES
Why: Because we’re all going to be staring at bigger screens soon. It doesn’t seem like tech companies realize that people don’t have space for 80+ inch TVs in their homes – 55 was already pushing it.
SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (longer read than it should be, because it’s more than 32 things)
What: And Then There Were 4
Why: Because football is still happening. Also, don’t call an article 32 things we learned if you have a whole bunch of sub-points that are distinct from the original point. That’s just bad writing. But then again, it’s an article about football.

FOOD THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. read)
What: The Dream Of Meatless Meat
Why: Because not killing things that feel for food seems like a good goal for humanity. Doubly so if it actually tastes good.
LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (short watch / read)
What: How To Deal With Books
