Carrie Fisher Has Died.
Can We Just Skip to 2017, Already?

Carrie Fisher, a daughter of Hollywood royalty who gained pop-culture fame as Princess Leia in the original "Star Wars" and turned her struggles with addiction and mental illness into wickedly funny books, a hit film and a one-woman stage show, died Tuesday after falling ill aboard a flight last week. She was 60.

I wish. To make it that much worse, 2016 has had a "leap second" added to it at midnight 12/31 GMT. Kind of a little stutter, chance for 2016 to do "one more thing".
