And so it begins ... blogging in the new year. As the Ole filter makes a pass...
But first, this: Dave Barry's Year in Review. Funny and great. "There's just no explaining 2014"...
And then there's the Economist's Year in Review, too. I *still* like the Economist; in this world of instant news there seems to be a role for a weekly news magazine that does more than merely tell you what happened. (The link is to a PDF made from their four-page summary.)
Just beautiful: New Year's snowstorm turns Grand Canyon into 'winter wonderland'. I think 2014 is the year that "global warming" tipped. Of course there is man-made climate change occurring but it doesn't appear to be the disaster it was positioned to be.
