We're now a third of the way through the year with headlines. I'm planning on setting up a few early Headline of the Month contests for the Totalfarkers in the next couple weeks and letting them get their votes in early. Also, it'll give me more room later on in the year when it's time for the big contest to go.

Enjoy these, and see you again right here next week.

Not sure. I thought I ran it last week, but I'm not showing that it took. So I went back through it and greened it in case I forgot last week (which is possible), but it's still not showing up on the table.

Can you guys see that thread?
