I’ll second that. Now, if anyone can explain to me what, exactly, is the point of forcing a bunch of horses to run around a track, thats something I’d be interested in hearing.

It's a milestone of the year, a marker on our lives. You can pass them by and not notice or care, but they are still there.

The ice broke a couple of weeks ago on the Tenana river in Nenana Alaska. The Nenana Ice Classic draws interest from around the world. One guy won over a quarter of a million bucks. Last year there were 22 winners. Who cares?

The money isn't important. When the ice breaks there you know the Bad of the Year is gone. That is what is important.

So are the fire festivals in northern Europe, Burn's Night, Daytona, The Masters, The Triple Crown, Indy ...on and on and on.

Don't spoil it for those of us who do mark the passing of the milestones.
