Happy New Year -- but what is happiness?
As I was putting away the Christmas tree lights, I noticed something kinda ironic about the box -- formerly used to store books of mine. Check it out:
Happy New Year, anyway, Brainiac readers! Among my resolutions for 2007 is to get the comments functionality turned on for all Globe blogs. (I have no power or authority to make that happen, but in my current role as a web editor here, I have a tiny amount of influence.) I look forward to communing with you when that happens, as do my fellow Brainiacs. Until then, please keep the e-mails coming.
