Happy New Year

My brother, proofreader extraordinaire and usually an astute observer of culture, said a few years back that he eagerly awaited the end of the decade of the 2000s, so that we wouldn't have to look at any more stupid eyeglasses on New Year's Eve.

Brother, I wish they'd listened.

Happy New Year to everyone who reads this. My wishes are for everybody's safety and good health going forward.

Happy New Year!

A friend sent me this article from The Onion. I'm sure you're aware of the severity of this news and how it affects us all. ;-) http://www.theonion.com/articles/4-copy-editors-killed-in-ongoing-ap-style-chicago,30806/?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_campaign=standard-post:headline:default

@Aunty: ZZZzzz are always the right prescription.

@Katelyn: Yeah, we're a dangerous bunch.

Happy New Year Csar!

The trenchant nature of your Haiku Monday entries (and that's LAST Monday, by the way), is worthy of its own art form.

I had to look up "trenchant." I'll take it.
