SOME NEW YEAR'S WISHES
With the new year having just begun, it is my fervent hope that 2010 will be a brighter year than 2009 was. Personally, the past year has been a pretty tough one, and I look forward to sunnier days ahead. Here, in no particular order, are just some of the things that I would love to see in the coming year:
*A resurgence of the Louisville Cardinal football program under Coach Charlie Strong;
*A successful NCAA tournament run for the Louisville Cardinals in basketball;
*A Super Bowl win for the Colts or the Bengals;
*Real progress on an East End bridge over the Ohio River;
*More eating, drinking and entertainment options in downtown New Albany;
*More bans of smoking in public places;
*An end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan;
*An end to the influence of Al-Qaeda and the Taliban;
*A renewed sense of compassion and understanding in our nation and throughout the world;
*Health and happiness to all friends and family.
These are just some of the desires that immediately come to mind. Here's hoping that you and those you care about have a wonderful 2010.
