Four Cents

5:30AM seems to be the magic wake up time for me as a Daddy. If I wake up any later, it's pretty much guaranteed that I will not get to work/church/first event of the day on time.

Which is strange, because 5:30 is when my dad always woke up. And I always thought he was absolutely crazy for doing so.

So, by process of elimination, we can say with assurance that waking up at 5:30AM is NOT the cause of my father's craziness. I'll keep you updated as the investigation progresses.

NPR told me last week that even though GDP was up for 7th quarter in a row, the economy was still in trouble. Dear NPR, that may very well be true, but I don't believe anything you tell me about the economy. That's because you never, ever, told me that there were things other than GDP to consider when you used the GDP to tell me how bad everything was in the economy with the Republican president. Now that the GDP is doing ok, you tell me that the GDP isn't the best indicator anymore? I know you mean well, but, seriously, don't report on the economy anymore.

You are waking up at 5:30AM and I see my dad when I look in the mirror. Scary, isn't it?
