neat article...


Been thinking about some stuff said by siliconshaman and anahata56, and then I started poking through the local paper.

One of the few things I like about Redding is Doni Greenberg, one of the regular columnists for the Redding Record Searchlight (known around town as the Wretched Flashlight, but I do digress.) Anyway, it's odd when my life does synchronous things like that, but let me share this wonderful column.

Forgive me for being a party pooper, but 2003 scares the bejesus out of me.

Which reminds me, I have a message for those who believe I have a moral responsibility as a columnist to assume an artificially brave and cheerful face. Sorry.

But I digress.

It's customary to say "Happy New Year." But this year, it feels a mite overly ambitious-- like setting the optimism bar just a tad too high. Happy New Year would be quite the luxury this year. Peaceful New Year gets top billing in my book.

--Doni Greenberg, Welcoming New Year requires courage, wisdom to see the Light.
