She just released some more U.S. ... Read More
We know, we know. It's already New Year's Eve, so what do you want with another year-end list? To be honest, Laurie and I meant to do this weeks ago, but the traditional list-making season fell smack in the middle of our traditional February/March print deadline, so you can guess what took precedence.
