Happy New Year! (Photoessay)
New York City may have the world's worst New Year's celebration. And last night, Fox News seemed to cut away from the ball just before it dropped. (The Boss was at work, but reported the same thing, before hearing it from me.) Times Square, Manhattan last night—confetti is a lot cheaper than fireworks, and shooting it may possibly be something one can entrust to an affirmative action employee, without burning down the city, though I wouldn’t swear to it.
I wish my readers a happy, healthy, productive year!
Sydney and London competed this year for the most ambitious fireworks demonstration. Who knows? Next year, they may be like Paris, and have to cancel any proper celebration.
In Germany, New Year's is called "Sylvester." When I lived there, it was the only time the Gerries went nuts. Milllions of "Ottonormalverbrauchers" (the equivalent to "Joe Six Pack" here) would blow up their own fireworks.
I am a dissident journalist, whose work has been published in dozens of daily newspapers, magazines, and journals in English, German, and Swedish, under my own name and many pseudonyms. While living in internal exile in New York, where I am whitelisted, I maintain NSU/The Wyatt Earp Journalism Bureau and some eight other blogs (some are distinctive but occasional venues, while others are mirrors), and also write for stout-hearted men such as Peter Brimelow and Jared Taylor.

The response so far to WEJB/NSU’s ongoing fundraiser has been very heartening, but we need tens of thousands of dollars more, in order to tide us over for 2012! If you have given, I thank you. If not, please consider making a donation.
