Better late than never. A reader recently asked why we take all the time to blog H&H and we had to say that - as much as it is a bear to blog - we think of it as such a valuable resource that we don't want to lose the links into the ether. Often, when we search for something on the site, the info is in H&H Roundup. Also, not EVERYONE gets a chance to read the paper edition, so we think of this as a nicely edited version for all of you far from NYC. We hope most folks agree. TOP STORIES
