Happy New Year! Happy Thresholds!

And Happy January! This month is named after Janus, the Roman god of thresholds, and thus, of transitions. He had two faces, one that could see the past and the other that could see the future. So in going from one year to another, as we celebrate the New Year, it has been customary to both look back and look ahead. In the buildup to New Year’s Day on this blog, we have been looking back. Now let’s look ahead.

    We may look forward to a further strengthening of Christian theological orthodoxy and a further weakening of the dominant secular liberal elites.

    We may, also, look forward to the 2010 elections and hope for enough Democratic defeats to deter Obama and the Democratic Congress from furthering their large spending, radical agenda.

    We may look forward to further strenuous though largely civil debate on this excellent blog-site.

    Happy and blessed New Year.

    Echoing Peter’s sentiments, and to add to them…

    …I’d enjoy seeing better officiating in the NHL. Watching the Winter Classic today gave me adequate cause to grind my molars together, as a Flyers player was down on all fours and attempting to get to his feet; while doing so, his back leg swung out behind him and inadvertently made contact with a Bruins defenseman, who was behind him and for all intents and purposes invisible to him, bringing him to his feet. The Flyers player was called for a tripping penalty.

    If that’s tripping, then I’m the Pope.

    The Bruins went on to tie the score on the subsequent power-play, then won the game in overtime.

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
