Seriously, good riddance to 2016. The late October visit was a joy, watching the Cubs finally win the World Series was a lot of fun, but otherwise so many people I admired and loved have left this plane and I do fear for the future of this country. Speak words of comfort to me, Jacob!-- ah, but you have none to give. So if anyone wants to kick back and enjoy a hearty game of Maccabees and Menorahs (via BoingBoing) be my guest. I'll be keeping my head low for the foreseeable. See you in 2017.
