Happy Memorial Day, folks, and enjoy the weekend. Here at Inside the ‘Zona, we’re getting an early start. The idea was to post some graphics in lieu of a post, and maybe add to that as the mood strikes later today, and over the weekend — I wouldn’t have written any kind of explanation here at all, but I need to make sure the graphics don’t show up on the front page of the web site. Trust me, that looks really awful when that happens. Okay, I think I bought enough time. Enjoy, and click to embiggen.
