He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Lindsey Vonn taking a break from World Cup skiing, per her Facebook page

Olympic gold medalist and noted ONE OF US Lindsey Vonn, who learned to ski on the mean slopes of Buck Hill, is taking a break from the World Cup circuit, she said Monday on Facebook:

After talking with my family and consulting with my coaches and trainers, I have decided to take a break from the World Cup circuit. Since my intestinal infection last month, I have been struggling with my energy and strength. I believe that some time off the mountain will help me regain the physical strength that I require to compete at the level that I demand from myself. I want to be emphatic that this has nothing to do with my recent interview with People Magazine. I had completed that interview weeks before I was in the hospital with the intestinal infection.

In the article she references, Vonn revealed that she has battled depression.
