Straight No Chaser -- Auld Lang Syne
Here it is, our final Sunday together for 2012. It's been quite the rollercoaster, as I look over the breadth and scale of the posts we have offered for this year. What began for me seven years ago as a favor to an ailing friend has turned into an avocation, a personal crusade and an opportunity to get to know some of the greatest liberal hearts and minds in the blogosphere. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be with you C&Lers every Sunday and I thank each and every one of you for challenging me on occasion, for educating and enlightening me on occasion and for being here with me every weekend. Thank you. I wish you and yours a wonderful and progressive 2013.
