  1. I did not want to see the ugly Defense stats on here, but really, it is time to face it and move on. Much like the reality check on the scale the first morning of 2013, when I can no longer say, I'll do something about that.

    Happy new year, thanks for the great writing this past year, especially the bounty gate information.
