New Year 2009

New Year 2009 has already arrived in some quarter of the world. Given the tumultuous annum that has passed, it is little wonder that most revelers are apt to bid it good riddance.


Pax Plena regulars will note that I am normally one to make a few New Year's resolutions, and based upon my list from January 2008, I am glad to report that I kept the bulk of them.  On the other hand, the list was so abstract in retrospect, that it would have been difficult not to keep at least some of them. I hope to make this year's list more concrete.

Alas, the list is a still a work in progress.  In fact, I may put its release on hold until tomorrow when I have things better sorted out.  For those in a similar fix, it may be helpful to consider a few suggestions from Uncle Sam

After all, we have less than three weeks before the social engineers take charge, and make the government suggestions mandatory.

But between now and midnight, whatever your time zone, please enjoy the rendition of Auld Lang Syne from 'LostmyChops.' For those interested in a brief history of the song, see this column from the Trinidad & Tobago Express.

And as always, from Pax Plena to you, Happy New Year.
