Seeing in the New Year... or Making Sure the Old One Leaves
January 01, 2010
By the time readers are opening the pages of this issue, we will all have turned the calendar on 2009 and left it behind for what will hopefully be a brighter 2010. Humorist Bill Vaughan once famously said of New Year's Eve: "An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves." Given the financial year we all just experienced, my suspicion is there may be a few more people in the latter group than in the former this year. However, here at LCGC, we can't help but be optimistic about 2010.
