Bonnes Fetes!

A different riff on my usual holiday greeting, acknowledging train strikes, demonstrations and general holiday traveling nightmares (based upon my true stories). But all is well and I’m happy to be home.

Here’s wishing all of you safe travels, timely arrivals, hassle-free returns and good cheer with good fortune for 2020.

And a special note to ANC subscribers: Stay courageous, keep the faith and stick together for the long haul.
