MERRY CHRISTMAS….It’s a few hours early, but I’m signing off for the year now. Merry Christmas, everyone!

I’ll be on vacation until shortly after New Year’s. Steve Benen of The Carpetbagger Report will be guest blogging for me, and various Washington Monthly editors may be popping in from time to time as well. In fact, I might even pop in occasionally myself depending on mood and availability of internet time.

In the meantime, have a nice holiday, eat yourselves silly, and root for the team of your choice in the upcoming bowl games. In Marian’s family, tradition says that even-numbered years are always better than odd-numbered years, and I’m sure hoping that’s true of next year. See you in 2006.
