With the second day of the LDBC thinking about heading to bed and all the LDBCers heading to work tomorrow, it’s time to tally up the misery thus far. And it ain’t pretty, as the dark side of the holiday cheer has reared its monstrous head and roared a roar that’s thick with rage, slobber, and something that smells suspiciously like Ballantine’s best.
At this time last year, we were down 10. In 2012, it’s nearly twice that at 19. That’s a lot of puh-rum-pum-pum-pain, people.
Location-wise, home is where the harm is, with people’s dwellings edging out the car by a couple of deaths. Artist-wise, there’s no leader yet, with The Jackson 5, Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra, Linda Ronstadt, Michael Bolton, and Peter Gabriel all stopping by to shank our best and bravest.
Let’s be careful out there.
