IQ: Shifting wind

by

comment

It's always a strange thing to wake up one summer morning (or afternoon if you're still a teenager, in my case) to find that winter has fully entrenched itself and you're already into the football season, not to mention the holiday season. And this year, along with full-fledged winter there's a presidential election still underway. Change is in the air -- and that means saying goodbye to the old and keeping an open mind to the new.
