The Wednesday Four

What we are we even on? Oh, right, week 20. So much keeps happening. It’s hard to believe it’s already April. It feels like it should be the end of the year already.

Anyway! You’ll notice this week’s articles are a bit lighter than my normal selections. Sometimes that’s just what we need. Please enjoy them.
