Dear MSBC, It has been a while since the last Main Blast article. This one is a little lengthy; please forgive me. I think the topic warrants it. As you know, a lot has happened in recent days.

Dear MSBC, You have probably had that awkward experience in an elevator. You know the one I’m talking about.
