  1. And to you also, Professor Kleiman and the rest of the RBC authors. Your posts consistently provide food for thought and that's always a Good Thing (with a nod toward Messers Sellar and Yeatman, as well as La Stewart).

  2. Same for you, Mark!

    My new year is going well, so far.

    The only problem is that my area (SE MI) started at 50 degrees, and is now at 20. That's around 30 degrees per day 🙂
