Pop Culture Odds and Ends – New Look Edition


You may notice this week that the pop culture round-up looks a little different this week. It is now set up by subject areas to group similar news items together. This was suggested by a reader and I thought I’d give it a try this week to see if how everyone liked it. Thankfully it’s not too much extra work and it plays into my type-A personality need to keep things organized. Plus readership has been dwindling a lot in the last few months and I really need to keep the few of you who are loyal readers happy. Hopefully this makes it easier for you to keep track of all the news in the roundup. Feel free to give me your feedback.

And now….on to what you’re really here for…..the pop culture extravaganza that I assemble each week. Get yourself caught up on what you might have missed with the latest edition of the roundup.
