These roundups don't always have a theme. Instead, we try to find recent issues you'll probably have a thing or two to say about, from celebrity gossip to world news to nonsensical politicians saying nonsense. I do this as kind of a news round up, but I also do it because it is my favorite thing to hear what you think, so I do this so that I get to read your comments on things we didn't even write about.
This week, though, there's something that ties most of these stories together. Can you guess? Meet me in the comments and tell me what you think. Here's a hint: it rhymes with "crying criers."
