The End of the Wild-Card Wednesday

Dear loyal BFT reader,

"Wild-Card Wednesdays" have appeared every Wednesday from March-August 2006. We will be introducing at least one new, permanent columnist in the Wednesday slot starting next week. WCW will make an appearance every now and again, but the era of the WCW as we know it is over.

To mark this momentous occasion, we wanted to give each week's WCW one last chance to stand in the sun, to be read by a few more pairs of eyes before falling forever into the archival abyss.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading!
