Happy New Year?

Well. It's that time again. Another year another opportunity to wait around until midnight and then hover awkwardly in the background nursing a drink and examining the CD collection while friends embrace and schmooze with their loved ones. Marking the inevitable passage of time, you can't beat it.

Meanwhile, it seems that a leading Indonesian diplomat is claiming that Indonesia's death toll my be as high as 400,000. I hope that this report is erroneous. If not, let us hope that the year has not begun as it intends to go on.

Frankly, barring positive developments on the Israel-Palestine front regarding new Palestinain leadership, I see little cause for optimism.

Everybody get wrecked!
