Welcome to the 29th issue of The Outsider Perspective, brought to you by The Beltway Outsiders.
I hope this issue finds you in good spirits as Christmas is upon us. This week I decided to compile stories worth reading over the long Christmas weekend. This will be the last issue of the Outsider Perspective for this year. I’m taking next week off. As such, I wish you, your family, and friends a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Happy New Year! I’ll see you all in 2017.
