Lots can be said about this here octagon, members. Whether it’s been a ground-and-pound cage match or an ultimate fighting championship; whether you married a philandering actor twice only to dump him for the squaresville of a former Secretary of the Navy; whether you faced an infinity of angles or an angular infinity, 2008 is but soon will be was. That said, don’t get your ass up from the opera house seat just yet. See that there yon minor Norse deity? It ain’t Orson Welles. It’s the Fat Lady. And she’s stepping onto the stage now. Listen up, members; this is a week of coming arias. Best to bone up on your fortissimo so you can join in when she sings.
