Whoa!  It’s been a while, but we’re back in action with our weekly Current Events feature!  You know the drill — all questions must be answered outside of school hours, you may only receive bonus points for one question per week and spelling, grammar and syntax are a MUST!

Capisce?  Good.  Let’s make like a rock and roll!
