ICYMI this week ...
Daily news headlines digest. Did you see what happened?
This week, there was a notable drop in reporting about police violence. Is it the spring air? A dead groundhog not saying whether or not spring would spring this week? Impossible to say. But, it was a week filled with news and, what I thought was particularly interesting, international news.
