Eye witness accounts at the Dallas Galleria, the far, far, far north Texas “nation” casino, and restaurants & airports from California to the New York Island confirm there is no economic crisis. Parking was at a premium as crowds of shoppers, diners, and gamblers indulged from sea to polluted sea.

International media outlets report that personal responsibility is not a requirement for survival in the 21st century. Many are satisfied with a virtual existence in these early years of the new millennium. Eleven years have passed since the fuel hoarding and apocalyptic hysteria of Y2K. Protesters once again write the user’s guide for humanity as we approach 2012. What essential information can we expect to guide our actions in the year ahead? Bad credit? No credit?

Until those who never dodge a fight have fallen and can’t get up, there is hope for the promise of tomorrow. Happy New Year! It’s good to be blogging again.
