We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

The year is almost gone


We at Samizdata will be onto the champagne soon, but it is gingerbread hippos for now.

    Happy New Year to all.

    Even with all the nonsense and evil in this crazy world, my oldest son and his lovely wife had a healthy new baby boy last spring after a couple of disappointing years trying to start a family.

    That makes grandson number 2 to go fishing with in a few years, and that makes 2012 a success by my very personal standard.

    Maybe 2013 will be better than we have any right to believe.

    One can always hope…

    Congratulations, Very! And, of course, to your son and daughter-in-law also. I hope you are someplace where the fishing is as good as you and your grandsons deserve.

    And, of course, Happy New Year!
