Happy new year, dear readers. Due to vacation and travel, we were unable to post any stories between Christmas and the New Year.
Hopefully we have our reading gear on, given that this year promises to provide a lot more fodder for pundits than any in the recent past.
To make up for our transgressions, we are posting the two Sunday Nation articles that appeared on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, and we welcome comments and suggestions of material we should cover this year.
Let's get on with it!
