"If it wasn't for my horse..."

Fans of Lewis Black and/or CmdrSue know the rest of that phrase, and how it accompanies a person's slow, agonizing, spiritual death.

My horse-line was a night or two ago on the news (I believe it was CBS). The news anchor read this story:

(somber) "The Arctic ice cap appears to be melting twice as fast as originally thought...

(suddenly perky) ...and economists say this could be a boon to the shipping industry!"

I don't remember much after that. Just that it was dark. And cold...very, very cold.
