Here’s a list for you, dearies. There’s lots of hot stuff coming up this week and next but we’ve elected to electioneer and to reduce our First Friday picks down to a lean and mean list with links and no commentary and one election-obsessed picture. We’ll be back and chatting away soon enough. Stay tuned.
