Fade Away

And the sun sets on another year, the last of a decade. Of course, over the course of the years, the Sun has shone its last on a lot of things. It's a safe bet that we didn't realize what we were seeing at the time. Humanity (or at least Americans - that sliver of humanity with which I have the most experience) often seems blind to events until they are safely (or regretably) past.

One wonders, now that we're at the dawn of a new year, if we'll gather the proper lessons from the one just past. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I think I know what the proper lessons are - but is there really anyone who ever thought differently?
