Weekly Memo

Took Labor Day weekend off. Decided to instead to subject myself to the misery that is UNC football (and play calling). Debuting new "Section" headers. Thought it was a great way to organize the material and allow you guys to pick and choose what you want to read in a more organized manner. We've got a memo that covers a lot this week (2 weeks worth). Anything from the Star Spangled Banner to Sriracha, as well as a couple of really, really strong long forms. 

Read up and enjoy.
