Below is our 2012 Year in Review.  

It is a comprehensive look at the past 12 months  - its ups, downs, winners, losers , victories and stumbles.

As always, we tried to include everyone who participated in this year's circus.

If you're in here, please remember this document is subjective and in most cases meant all in good fun.  So if you're happy with it, we'd love to hear from you. If not? We're on vacation and will be back sometime in 2013.  We'll call you back then.

One point we'd like to make.  The murders in Newtown one week ago were among the most devastating tragedies this country has faced in years.  They effected not just the community in Connecticut, but an entire country.  Let's hope that true change comes out of unspeakable tragedy.

With that in mind, I'd like to ask that all of you remember the Newtown victims and their families in whatever way you see fit this holiday season.  

 

Merry Christimas, Happy Hannukah and Happy New Year to all our loyal readers!

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi
