A lack of quality control?
Last year we ran Roundup posts: for Jan-Apr 2016, May-Aug 2016, and Sep-Dec 2016. The idea is just to highlight the better or more perennial posts that new readers may have missed and old-timers may want to re-read.
Last week we ran the first Roundup post for 2017: January to April.
Today we'll take a look at the middle of the year. There was a lot going on!
