But this is only Wednesday, you say?
Alert readers of Inside ASU will wonder, why is Thursday's edition out a day early? Answer: this is not the Thursday edition; it's the new Wednesday edition.  Effective immediately, we are boosting publication frequency to three times weekly, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  We are finding more and more good news to tell, and we want to get it to the campus community in a more timely fashion. Tell us what you think . . . our addresses are at the bottom of the column at left.
