Thanks for all the kind words, guys.
My dad is in the hospital with a bad case of pneumonia. He's in pretty rough shape. He had a stroke 12 years ago and has had a poor quality of life ever since, so stuff like this is not unexpected. At this point we just want him to be comfortable.
Obviously I'm behind on my work right now. I will make a post here later today. I also owe Rotowire an article and my newsletter readers an issue. I will take care of everything as soon as I can, and I appreciate your patience. Yes, family is first priority, and I'm not going to short-change that, but at least doing some work when I can is a comfort on a personal level and helps keep me from obsessing too much over things I cannot control.
