If you do one thing today...

As it turns out, February 22 is not only George Washington's birthday but also Single Tasking Day. In other words, amid the emails, voicemails, texts, and tweets, let us pause for a moment and get one thing done that we've been meaning to do for a long time.

For instance, I've been meaning to write about the U.S. nuclear warheads that are still in Germany. Who knew? But first off, what's the deal with Olympic skater Evan Lysacek's outrageous black outfit—you know, the one with the snakes? Could this have possibly been designed by the same person who created the black garb donned by General Zod in Superman II? And have you been following the investigation into the assassination of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh? Authorities in Dubai are absolutely certain this was a Mossad hit job and the 11 passports they have in hand (British, Irish, French, and German) are forged. Which could very well be true. Or this could be the greatest assembly of assassins since Ronin.

Now, where was I?
