I Love You but You Didn’t Do the Reading

[Editor’s Note: We at ILYBYGTH are happy to announce a new feature, “I Love You but You Didn’t Do the Reading.”  In this weekly column, we’ll point out stories of interest to SAGLRROILYBYGTH, a sort of “in case you missed it” list.  Will we be able to keep it up?  Who knows.  But let’s give it a try and see if people like it.  Suggestions for readings are always welcome to our editorial desk: alaats AT binghamton DOT edu .]
