Friends and Colleagues,
As some of you know, I have been sending out a weekly newsletter to keep our humble employees apprised of various goings-on in the world. However, I have been derelict in my duty by not keeping this site updated with said newsletters (or, as they are commonly known, “Internal Memos”). Thus, I will begin updating weekly as they come in. In the meantime, please enjoy the last few, which I will be posting throughout the next few days.
