I'm running off to festivities. It's a happy new year in the U.S.–but not in Israel and Palestine! Thanks to all my readers, thanks to all the commenters, thanks to all my contributors, thanks to all my friends. Thanks to Adam Horowitz for his cool logical presence in the last few weeks. I'm wishing for largeness of spirit in the year to come. In myself, in my chill president, in the Israelis, in the Palestinians too. Despite the horrors of the last week, their cause has moved very far in the last year. I think a lot of their advocates are praying right now that they show nobility, with the eyes of the world on 'em. Gotta start the car!
