Happy (Let's hope at least) New Year

Wide awake into the morning of Jan. 1, 2007 and I see not a lot has changed. The death count for U.S. troops in Iraq hit 3,000. A peter_king/12/31/week17/”>pro football star was killed in a drive-by. And, the Supreme Court wants a raise. (well, who doesn’t?)

But good news also can be found. Scientists may help contain Mad Cow disease by … oh well, you read the story. Turkey is celebrating the meeting of the Islamic and Gregorian calendars. Also, those of us who are reading this are alive. So that can be good news.

It is my prediction that this year we shall see both good and bad news. The same can probably be said for 2008 as well. On that note, I say: Happy New Year and don’t take any wooden nickels.
