Today is the dawn of a new day, the beginning of a new age, the start of something big. And, as always, when new doors open others close.
Of course I’m referring to the start of CityBeat’s 15th year of publishing. This issue of CityBeat in print is Volume 15, Issue 1, a momentous turning of the calendar.
Oh yeah, the United States has a new president-elect today. I guess that’s pretty big news as well.
I write this column on Election Day not knowing the results of the presidential contest, but I have a good feeling that Barack Obama will prevail. You’ll know by time you read these words; if you don’t and we’re headed to a repeat of the Florida fiasco in 2000, God help us all.
