Here's To 2011

New Year's Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.  -- Mark Twain

Happy 2011 everyone.  Why, it seems like merely a decade ago that we started making all those ridiculous Arthur C. Clarke jokes.  And look where we are now.

In regards to that, one more quote for everyone to think about this year:

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.  -- C.S. Lewis
