      Hi, Margie! It’s so flattering that you want a weekly newsletter from us! As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we really do have a lot to say — but usually people ask us to STOP talking, not send them newsletters! Anyway, we don’t have a weekly newsletter at this point. But if you want to be notified every time we post something new, you can follow us on Twitter (as long as you’re over the age of 13). Check us out here:
