Spotty internet the last day or so has been mine, so I figure I owe you, me, and everyone a list. Or even two. So without further ado:

5 Lessons Learned From A Somber Day

5. Even NFL stars in the prime of life can die suddenly. RIP Chris Henry.

4. One thing I would do if I had a wife who went missing: cooperate. Cooperate with the police until they were sick of me. And do what I had to do to keep my father-in-law on my side.

3. This economy sucks, and it won't get better until we're not fighting a huge, expensive war on three fronts.

2. If I were the best in my field at something, and I were prevented from doing it for 3.5 years on trumped-up political charges--during the best years--I'd still be angry even after I had returned, earning the respect, apologies, and adulation of everyone.

1. "It's been a long December, and there's reason to believe/Maybe this year will be better than the last."
