Bad news

We'll take a breather from politics for a moment to discuss this incredibly bad news from the world of sports: Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre is retiring.

Favre is the quintessential NFL quarterback: hardy and tough, great under pressure, a real winner. He is also a class act, which, unfortunately, is an increasing rarity in professional sports.

There is no one like Brett Favre. The NFL will not be the same without him, and Sundays will be less exciting now that he won't be there.

Best of luck, Brett. It's been a great ride.
