Your first Sunday morning of the new year! Plus a very handy round up of the year we bid goodbye, from one of the best civics educators on the bird app.

All week long, Crooks and Liars has been giving out Crookie Awards to many of the villains of this past year, and Good Guy Crookies to some of the the most deserving players on the political landscape. They served as reminders of an outrage here and triumph there — something we do at the end of every year.

One of my favorite peeps on Twitter (she is constantly educating people on how, you know, government works...) made this great video round-up of pictures and headlines, though, that really gives us an overview of the several decades' worth of political upheaval that has happened over the course of these last twelve months. A birds' eye view (HAR) if you will, from Candidly Tiff (@Tiff330) on Twitter.

Enjoy, reflect, and may 2022 bring joy and justice to you and yours.
