HAPPY NEW YEAR [IT HAS GOT TO BE BETTER THAN THE OLD ONE]

It is now almost ten years since a young, spry philosopher launched The Philosopher's Stone.  Two million, nine hundred eleven thousand, three hundred ninety six views later, a slightly plumper, noticably older philosopher confronts the new year with the desperate hope that it will be better than the old one.  If Trump can be restrained from launching a nuclear war, I believe the prospects for the new year are good.  Mueller will indict some more members of the transition and administration, the Democrats will win the House and even, God willing, the Senate, Trump wll be impeached and put on trial by the Senate, another dozen or more politicians will be outed as sexual predators, and The Philosopher's Stone, along about April  Fool's Day, will pass the three million mark in total views.

Happy New Year to all.
