I don't want to be restrained as to length, but agree that a presentation
with paragraphs, with links to the full article, could be better.
Would that be the first paragraph, or something extra we should fill in? I'm
open to both.
If others agree, then James could consider implementing it.
A weekly review in the format you suggest in the attachment, looks good to
me, I have no objections. Again, James would have to say if it can be
automated to appear that way, or else a volunteer could do it,
