Now that I'm writing all the news and almost all other articles myself, it becomes difficult to maintain the same regular pace during the summer.

Normally, I write a news item or article per day, send out our free newsletter once a week, and three newsletters to our Premium Supporters.

This summer, it will be a news item every other day and the newsletter will be bi-weekly instead. There will also be fewer Premium Supporter mailings.

This starts to apply from today, Midsummer's Eve, and continues until the end of July.

So that you won't miss anything optimistic to read this summer, here are a bunch of our best and most-read articles.
