Ring out the old, ring in the new…PLEASE!


“Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”
       Alfred Tennyson (Alfred, Lord Tennyson; 1809-1892) 
       From his poem In Memoriam A.H.H. (1850)


“Ring out the old and hope for a better new year...2009. It was the new 1930 — only without  the D word. Because, as we all know, we are not in a depression. We are merely in a recession, which is a decline in the gross domestic product for two or more consecutive  quarters. This is nothing like a depression, which is, technically...Oh, whatever, just pass  the Prozac, and let’s get on with it.”
