Hey everybody, sorry this Headline of the Week is behind schedule, I was in Vegas on Monday and Tuesday looking into hotels for Fark's big meetup at the end of March, and I spent most of yesterday traveling to get home.
Heads-up: Tomorrow is Fark's Headline of the Year contest for 2011.
I'm gonna push it live at 11AM Eastern. I was hoping to have the subtab contests done by now, too, but those are getting bumped to next week. I'll have a thread in about an hour that will be at the top of the the Greenlit tab, linking to all five of the third quarter subtab contests, and I'll have another five contests tomorrow for the fourth quarter.
