Happy New Year?

You are so right. How do we do this?? Just saying it does not make it possible unless 1/2 of the American population will do it. When that time comes I will be glad. Until then I can only pray that a person of notable respect will come forward and ask all Americans to follow his/her lead.
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
