Hi NQ Readers–I don’t know how 2011 is going to go down. But maybe our leaders got the message this last election that we want to see some solid solutions and forward movement.
I made my list of resolutions last night. (In 2010 I managed for the first time ever to actually accomplish about half of them!) This year I want to try to become, if only in a very small way, part of the solution. I will volunteer more time on behalf of the local public schools, constantly bug my Congress Critters about things they should care more about, and be the best friend I can be to those around me. Oh, and I want to also learn how to do better animated cartoons. (That requires mastering a difficult program.)
I wish you all health, happiness, and prosperity. I understand that in these difficult times those words seem almost banal, inappropriate even given the enormous problems we face, but I still sincerely wish these blessings for each one of you.

2011 promises to be an eventful year as it winds us up for 2012. Remember, no hitting below the belt, and, in the end, we’re all on the same side here — we all want a strong and prosperous nation, a peaceful world.
May each day in the year be a good day
May each dawn find you happy and gay
And may all of your hopes turn to wishes
And may all of your wishes come true
(by George Wyle)

May you confound your enemies and treasure your friends, may you find joy in unexpected places and may your grace and caring of others be returned threefold.

I’m so thankful to be supported by such a talented group of writers and artists. I don’t have an ideology to force on you. I want you to think for yourselves. The women and men who post at NoQuarter are simply committed to truth, no matter how uncomfortable. Let’s hope that 2011 brings us more prosperity and peace as a nation.
