Happy 2013!  It was really nice seeing my Facebook news feed full of happy people yesterday.  Fresh starts are so invigorating, and I’m looking forward to this year. : )  I started a draft of this post weeks ago, and never had time to finish it, so you’re getting this puppy in as-is condition.  I promise lengthy book reviews and actual words soonish.

First and most importantly, read this brilliantly sane, reasonable article from The Daily Beast about the recent shooting, if you haven’t already run across it.
