Hi Brett,

Could I ask a narrower question -- not about your worldview (I 
understand how that might elicit a counter-question) -- but just a 
simple interpretive question?

In what sense might Americans not be so fully deserving of a Happy New 
Year greeting?

Thanks, and Happy New Year!

For the new year. -- I still live, I still think:
