Happy New Year*

* offer void for anyone who wants to dictate the terms of "Happy" holiday greetings, plus my goddammed libertarian neighbor who had to celebrate the joyous occasion by setting off ten minutes of fireworks in the street, no doubt terrorizing all the other neighborhood pets as it did mine. Yours is coming. And for Karl Rove, "Scooter" Libby, Tom DeLay, "Duke" Cunningham, Jack Abramoff, Michael Scanlon, James Tobin, and all the others yet to be netted, an extra special 2006 of pleasant dreams, a nice, soft, pillow, and one hour of supervised exercise each day.

Happy New Year, Doghouse and family.

I wonder if your neighbor would have gone off on a rant about the irresponsibility of some people who disturb the peace when my neighbor started in with the fireworks at ten. (I assume he didn't want to compete with the other neighbors, who started at eleven thirty and are still going. Our parking lot should be pretty damned demon-free by now.)
They seem to have an endless sense of entitlement, these libertarians, which does not extend to anyone else.
Me, I'm ringing in the new year by folding a bunch more paper cranes. About as peaceful as you can get. Let's hope this one stays that way.
