Saturday links by Rich (

After today, your Saturday correspondent is going to take few weeks off, and when I return it may be in reduced role, perhaps platooning on Saturdays with another blogger as Bruce expands the staff. Although it is a lot of fun, it is also time consuming, and my non-BSMW Saturday obligations are catching up with me.

After doing the links once a week for about six months, I find it mind-boggling that Bruce has been tirelessly doing it every weekday for almost 3 years. Not to sound like Steve DeOssie (“caller – have you ever played NFL football?!?!”), but it is harder to put one of these things together than you think (or at least than I thought before I did it), so a big tip of the keyboard to Bruce for the incredible amount of time and effort he puts into it.
