I got so caught up with writing this F.W. Webb embezzlement-news blog Friday morning that I forgot to include ID's Top 5 in the morning newsletter, so I bumped it to Monday's.
That embezzlement item dominated Monday's content and was already the top-viewed item of the week by mid-day Friday. An infographic about Amazon's SKU count was another big item, along with Airgas making acquisitions, news about the future of oil prices and the resignation of ISA's president.
Here's this week's Top 5
