- 3 April: A generous notice from Susan Brall for DCMetroTheaterArts.
- 1 May: Oh, dear Fox, yes: “Stop Saying ‘I Feel Like.’”
- 5 June: One more report from the nest box monitoring team for the season.

- 6 August: Another visit to our Boston office this past week.
- 2 September: We bounced back from the dismal 2015.
- 2 October: “Why Some Wars Get More Attention Than Others,” by Amanda Taub.
