Sometimes, supervising The Nugget is so (ahem) "dry" that I have a hard time staying awake until it's again time to chase or eat something (or both!).

So, this month, I instructed my minions to create a new feature called "Most Read Last Month" where we reprise the column that the most readers looked at last month--on the off chance you might have missed it! Go to the end of The Nugget to check out this new feature, which will appear every month!
