SOME THOUGHTS FOR THE NEW YEAR, from Fabius Maximus:
As we start a New Year I find it useful to review my core beliefs. It is easy to lose sight of those amidst the clatter of daily events. Here is my list:
1. We are a people with a great past.
2. The challenges ahead are no greater than those behind us.
3. The American people can surmount these challenges if we work together.
4. We will be what we wish to be, if we but make the necessary effort.
Everybody expects the next year to suck. Given the record of recent predictions, that means it’s got a decent chance of being pretty good . . . .
