pinnacle_postWe realized we’d never really had a good way to refer to our weekly e-mail of the Tuesday website update, and we asked for your help. You were definitely up to the challenge.

Though we had many excellent suggestions, the winner is The Pinnacle Post! If you’re not getting it now, just click on the Subscribe to Weekly News and Updates button at the right of the screen. Heck, we might even be renaming that soon, too!
