    I agree with both Liz and Larry–we can hope that somehow the turning of the calendar will magically put a positive glow on everything. Trouble is, there are too many very serious problems left. unsolved that the beginning of the new year won’t solve, either. Here in the U.S, we’re being told that we can expect to be wearing masks well into the fall and winter of the coming year. And that’s just one problem.
