A special year begins

Welcome to 2008! (And if it's not that year yet where you are, don't worry...you'll be in it soon.)

It promises to be an exciting year for all sorts of reasons, not the least of which is that it's the centennial of the birth of this community's favorite subject. And to commemorate it, I've designed a special logo. If you want to copy it for your personal use, be my guest. Here it is:

To you, your family and friends, our best wishes for a pleasant, productive -- and safe -- 2008.
