The Watcher’s Council sees out the old year

We’ve been cleaning house like crazy.  My husband woke up this morning and announced that everything that was useless had to go.  Well, I say that every day (usually about the President), but no one listens to me.  With him in the driver’s seat, though, we had a frenzy of cleaning, which resulted in a full car for Goodwill, and a lot of stuff by the side of the house for the trash man.  I’ve got a minute now before the Goodwill run, and I’m using it, to my delight, to read this week’s submissions to the Watcher’s Council.  I can’t recommend better stuff to see out the old year and see in the new:
