Coffee and Cigarettes: The Week That Was

I've decided to make this a weekly thing because there's so much good material around here lately and I'm sure people are missing out on some good analysis. Even if you've already read this stuff, you might have missed out on some good discussion so go check out what'd been said as well. Big tip of the cap to Thomas, Kenneth, Charlie, Whiskey, Krazy, Jacson, Davis and all the Field Gulls writers and contributors that have been putting in so much work lately.

In case you've not been around the site this week, this is what you've been missing. (Hint: It's a lot).
