1. The news cycle lately has been so depressing (Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Darrien Hunt here in Utah,  the Cleveland police, the fact that the specter of “ebola in America” went away the minute the elections were over, Bill Cosby, air quality and our winter inversions, global warming, really–just pick something and it is depressing). I don’t even have a hippie platitude for it.

3. I do, however, have a picture of Toby in a cowboy hat that Doc photoshopped and sent to me. So there’s that. I’ll take what I can get.
