I won't be here to make this post new year's eve, so I shall wish you a happy new year in advance. Though I wish to comment on the disaster in Southeast Asia and public policy for dealing with such natural disasters, time is short; my flight leaves in six hours. I shall see you all in the new year. Unless I see you in Saskatoon first. And this means that Part 1 will be posted in 2005. Figures.
RIP, those who passed away in Southeast Asia.
