A Good Start to the New Year

New Year’s Eve last year was a rather doleful event: a marking of the fact that, yes, this is the year we’ll see the inauguration of D.T. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was still suffering from a shell shock that didn’t really start evaporating until the summer. But we can …
