We got a little busy with breaking news on Friday and didn’t get around to that day’s news cheat sheet.

Sorry about that. To make amends, this weekend’s cheat sheet includes headlines from Friday, and thus spans August 15 to August 17. It’s basically a deluxe edition.

(For news updates throughout the day, be sure to follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter.)
