Farewell to 2016 (Wednesday, December 28, 2016)

Well, 2016 has not been a good year. I've just finished the Star Wars VII and most of a bottle of tequila in an effort to commemorate Carrie Fisher's untimely passing. Many people seem to be anxious to see the end of a year filled with loss and tragedy. Personally, I don't see any hope for a brighter 2017. After all, everyone that died this year will still be dead next year, and on top of that, we'll have to suffer through the consequences of the November election.

Well shit, I just learned that Richard Adams, the author of Watership Down, has ALSO died. At least he was really old.

So anyway, all these great people will still be dead in 2017. And we have only more war and poverty to look forward to. I must say I'm a little concerned - bread and circuses can only last so long. In any case, I'm not looking forward to 2017.
