Let's hope the Brooklyn GOP finds itself in time to do something meaningful in 2016
Wishing all my friends, and political and blogging associates of all stripes, hues and descriptions >>> A Happy New Year for 2016
And to all the villains in my life >>> A miserable undoing before the next New Year
I intend to revel very quietly and think fondly of many New Years past. At the same time, I will be grateful at not having to wait in Canarsie or Mill Basin for a bus back home to Bay Ridge well into the AM; and be amazed that all of that seems not very long ago, even though it's been close to fifty years.
Also my images of that revelry are intruded upon by a few moving picture images of people shouting "HAAAPP-PEEE NEW YEAR !!!" -- like William Powell, as Nick Charles in "After the Thin Man," or Joe E. Brown, as Cap'n Andy in "Show Boat"..... Something that shows the power of certain mediums to substitute fabricated images in place of, or at least ahead of, real ones.
