LZ Sunday Paper Newsletter: The "Oly Oly" Edition

Dateline: 8/1/21

Dear Subscribers,

I had big plans this weekend.

I had big plans for a q&a intro for the Paper with two cool women in the news; didn't happen.

I had big plans to go far in the A-Mixed Doubles; drew a tough team-- last year's club was the male half--in the second round. Yes, I had a bagel for breakfast.

And after that, I had big plans not to pass out after my first post-quarantine massage of the year. 

Time got away from me, but not this week's news. I dug in, got a grip, rounded it up, and am delivering it with all the high expectations from all ye faithful. Enjoy this chock-full Olympics-heavy missive. We still cover all the news you have to know by and about women in the world.
