Ed. note: Forgive the short Footnotes today, it's been a long day and there's not much going on, plus it's half a week this week (yes, we will be out after noon on Wednesday and will not see you again until Monday so plan accordingly). We're on Twitter so @ us and you can always get us on email so just reach out if you need us, especially if you're sitting at dinner with your family you hate and need a distraction, I'll be happy to send you funny cat photos to get you through.
