The TKC Communiqué - Round We Go

Good morning my beautiful darlings!!!
You might not realize this but you’re almost three hundred strong in less than 72 hours.
This morning news journey has reignited our faith in the open Internets and offered something just a bit more fun than enduring rude comments from housewives, retirees and the chronically unemployed which often dominate blog content.
And so we start this morning look with the theme of a “round world” that’s getting smaller every day. This is an important concept given the growing number of flat-earthers out there … Real talk, one of my favorite cousins recently made my brain explode with a reference to the “firmament” – A lesson I had nearly forgotten from Catholic school.
Accordingly … We’re going to continue to add new sections to this daily blast and at the end of this update will bring the discussion back around with a question for constant readers.
Right now, as always, let’s get started with local news …
