Happy holidays! I hope your holidays have been, and continue to be, all you hope for. It’s hard to believe there are only two days left in the first decade of the 2000s. And like many who worry about such dumb things, I’m struggling with what to call the last ten years. Is it the ‘Aughts? The ‘Oughts? The Zeros? The Zilches? Beats me.
Also, several months ago I mentioned that I had some neat news regarding Washington Irving that I would announce as soon as I could. I now can — but I’ll wait until the first week of 2010. See you on the flip side.
