alas, friends, at this moment i have none of lionello’s usual dubious fare to offer: no inane questions, no irrelevant comments, no puerile verses, no feeble jokes --- only a brief message:
Today at sundown the Hebrew year 5768 will begin. Whoever you are, and whatever your persuasion, I wish all of you the very, very best for the year to come (and beyond as well). I thank you for the pleasure, the instruction, and the camaraderie which you bring into my life, and ask your pardon for any wrong I may have done to any of you, wittingly or not. Oh, how I wish the rest of the world were a bit more like wordorigins.org and the people in it......
A Happy New Year to you all.
