I’m self-appointed WLHA editorial director Grumpy Old Dan Smith and here’s what makes me grumpy. Journalists have a love affair with lists…five things you should know…five things you should do…five ways to avoid your in-laws…Here’s my list about what you need to know about—lists.

  1. Write your list on paper…you’ll lose it and trust me you’ll feel better.
  2. Don’t you need to know something before you start you list with: “five things you should know about…”
  3. If we did everything on the list we’d be perfect and we’re not even close.
  4. Who the hell are you telling me about “five things you should know about…”
  5. Sorry for this list…I’m just grumpy…as in Grumpy Old Dan Smith.
