Happy New Year!

Survivalists unite!

Look up at the big wooden owl on the rooftop and

Notice how well it's diverting pigeons

From nesting there. Now tell me--

Should we quail before an ignominious trumpery figurehead?

No! Let us invoke the spirit of FDR with his resonant

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

The new black is the old black recycled.

Yes, we'll surely have a fine new year

To celebrate and glorify our love of life.
