Copyright? What is This Thing Called Copyright?
So the copyright discussion seems to continue with this new chapter from my friend Al, (aka @brundle_fly) who tweeted a link to this email, which I am reproducing with his explicit permission.

And this year, after a cool spring,  our overloaded schedule is perfectly timed with the Extreme Weather Warnings too.
