Hi, and welcome back to Bench Report! Due to some technical issues, we’re coming to you this Monday instead of this past Friday, but we’ll be back on track and in your inbox later this week. A big hello to new readers, and just as big of a hello to those of you who came back. I’m excited to be back in the newsletter game, and if you like whatever I send to your inbox this week, feel free to spread the word—forward this newsletter to a colleague, send a friend to my pinned tweet for info on how to subscribe, print out this email and send it to a loved one via carrier pigeon, pick your poison. In the meantime, send all news, tips and feedback to [email protected], and follow me on Twitter at @jacq_thomsen.
