That the great Aretha doesn't turn up at Radio City in February after all, either physically or mentally.

That Jonathan Franzen is writing a new novel.

That David Mitchell is not.

That Europe will be a day late and a Euro short.

That Casey Anthony anything. Enough.

That the 2012 election will define ugly down.

That a Pomeranian will win Westminster.

That the Curiosity Rover won't have a safe journey in its 209 days to a Mars landing.

That economic forces will trump common sense in the fracking debate.

And speaking of Trump, we're dreading that the Muffy Tufted One will actually come up with a way to sink lower.

Correspondence from County Clerk Norman Goodman.

That the Ann Curry wrecking ball continues to make The Today Show unwatchable.

That Op-Sail 2012, which arrives in May, gives us a week with all those sailors, and that that won't be enough time.

That Occupy gets preoccupied.

That the Mayans were on to something.

That 2011 isn't over.
