Happy First Day of Summer to you. Yes, we know school has been out a week already but we nerds know that the Summer Days OFFICIALLy don’t start until the big red guy reaches its highest point in the sky which results in the most hours of sunlight in a single day. This is NOT to be confused with the latest sunset, because those are two different things, but we digress. And, oh, BTW, we hope you all enjoyed your first official Juneteenth federal holiday. So let’s check out today’s news and events.
