This is dated as being posted on 4/25 but I didn’t see it when I checked last night or this morning. This seems to get posted later and later on Fridays to the point where it’s often not useful for some of the Friday events. But this time I’m confused as to whether this is a problem on my end or did the author backdate the post?
