Outlook Poor for Comatose Schumacher: Today's New York Times has bad news about F1 legend Michael Schumacher, who has been in a medically induced coma since being hurt two months ago in a skiing accident: "The outlook for Schumacher, 45, has been obscured by the decision of his doctors and his family not to give regular updates on his progress. But what is known seems increasingly dispiriting, at least for his prospects of achieving a complete mental and physical recovery, or even of escaping long-term impairment."

Honestly, if it was ANY other driver from my almost 30 years of following the sport, I'd probably be very upset, concerned, and feel something. He was skiing in an area he'd been explicitly warned not to very shortly before his accident, and given how he acted in his professional life... I feel very bad for his wife and kids. My wife and kids went through something similar with me in 2010. But the man himself? I nothing him.
