-THE WRAP UP- This week was blissfully low-key. With the exception of the Nats game on Wednesday, I spent my week reading this month’s book club book and this week’s New York Times (it always takes me forever to just get through the Magazine, culture, and business sections), and watching TV when I wasn’t at work.
