For this week's roundup of things we didn't write about, but that you might want to comment on, I tried something new. Instead of spending Sunday morning scrolling through various newsfeeds, we gathered up these 10 links throughout the week. The obvious upside is that we all got to keep our weekends (somewhat more) to ourselves. The downside is that this list may be missing news that broke yesterday and today. So feel free to add to this list, of course.
