We've had to low-crawl on our stomachs and chests all week, under razor wire and raking machine gun fire, but we've finally made it, safe: The Weekend.
Relax, enjoy your coffee, no rush. There'll be little mention of politics here today, save for a quick thanks to the cosmos for the Tampa-tantrum finally ending. (Yes, now that you ask, I will have a little something in my coffee, after all. Whooo-ah.)
