Lunchtime Reads for National Tartan Day (April 6)

Good afternoon, all, and happy National Tartan Day! Today honors the 20-ish million Americans with Scottish heritage. Also, I want to apologize for my past two weeks’ absence. The first week I was in Savannah for Georgia Heritage Responders training. GHR is disaster response for cultural heritage sites. Last Wednesday, I was at the funeral of Congressman Don Young, who I worked for from 2008-2011. I should have a remembrance printed in the Congressional Record this week, so I’ll link it for y’all next week. He was the best boss, and he loved his state fiercely. I learned more working in that office than I did in any other job, period. He was a giant, and I’ll miss him terribly.

Now… on to the news.
