This is an abbreviated week, but that doesn't mean we're going to abbreviate out the mailbag. So let's get going.
Please submit your question, comment or (short) screed by posting below, e-mailing me at email@example.com, or tweeting at me at @sethemerson. I do request that you provide your name and city or state/country/planet of residence.
There will be no live chat this week, so this is your chance. Fire away.
