    I didn't see a forum where I thought this post fits well. If the moderators want to move it to another forum , that's okay.

    Four Things 1. An assortment of errands and appointments have allowed me to catch up on a few episodes of Don Watkins's interesting and enjoyable Liberty Unlocked podcast.
