And the fighting continues in the Middle East. Again, at the risk of sounding partisan, this space would like to point out that, while Israel continues to attack Hamas in Gaza, the country is also sending in truckloads of humanitarian relief. One cannot help but wonder how those truck drivers are being treated.
On a lighter note, the Solipsist would like to wish everyone a happy new year. Make sure to designate a driver. And make sure those resolutions are fun!
