***TO ME, MY X-MEN***

We got up to plan for the new episode and decided that if the X-Men stand for anything, it’s fighting injustice.

The Winter Special will go up on Sunday, January 29, at which point we’ll resume the normal posting schedule.

Meanwhile, we’ll see you at the Portland Women’s March on Washington.

Love,
J&M
