| As the cold dawn of 2008 breaks I cast my jaundiced eye upon the sorry state of the world and hereby resolve not to resolve. I won't go quite as far as Maureen Dowd and opt for exorcism (NY Times, Dec 30, 2007) instead of resolutions, but in my maturity accept the futility of compiling lists of heartfelt, albeit utterly unrealistic, resolutions for self-improvement in the new year. Reality is a stubborn thing, and eventually must be recognized; towit, January 1, 2007, 2006, 2005...

Instead, I shall prognosticate. In 2008:

Ah, yes, 2008 will be a wonderful year! That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
