Longest Night?

(From the Book of Faces, December 21, 2011:)

James McCoy: Can you tell me, is the longest night of the year tonight, or tomorrow night?

Michael D. Cohen: It's tonight, James. Today will be really short, with like 3 hours of daylight, followed by 21 hours of murk, penumbra, shadow, twilight, and soul-crushing darkness. On the bright side, tomorrow will be about 3 minutes longer, giving you that much more time to experience the bleakness of your existence.

James McCoy: I'm glad that I don't have to grade your papers.
