Dreary days like yesterday hit home how depleted our sunlit hours are as we head into the final days of lengthening gloom. As I write this at 7:15 a.m. the sun is just rising, and today sunset's is at 4:45,
but by Friday either the world is going to end or the days are going to start getting longer again. All we know for sure is that the DC Rocks' Drive By Truckers ticket contest ends early Friday morning. Click the link! Be a winner, Charlie Brown.
