Happy New Year

Enormous thanks to all those who took the time to read our blog posts this year and, on occasion, joust with us over the finer points of what we write.

Looking back, 2011 was quite a year. From Occupy Boston to the killing of Osama Bin Laden, from corruption on Beacon Hill to the brewing race to replace President Obama, a lot happened over the last 12 months.

Yet, as we stand here on the precipice of a new year, we see an America that is largely unchanged from the one we saw at the beginning of 2011.

Many of the problems that have plagued our nation remain unresolved -- high unemployment, staggering national debt, and foreign policy challenges just to name a few.

Although we fill these pages talking about these troubling issues most days, we also try to look toward the future and foresee what's coming. Politics always has been, and always will be, a process of trying to create a better tomorrow, and we love having discussions with you here about what that tomorrow should look like.

So, here's to that tomorrow. Here's to 2012.

See you next year.
