I'll be heading back to South Florida this afternoon, leaving behind the cold weather of the last few days. The days here have been been surprisingly tolerable primarily because of the lack of a strong wind. It also helps that the skies have been, for the most part, clear, although I think that is supposed to change today. Here's your morning Sift.

Americans need to name the enemy: the N.R.A., which let’s face it, represents the interests of gun manufacturers and their need for profits, not individual, responsible gun owners.
