Happy New Year-2017
As I sat watching the ball drop in Times Square, New York city ushering in a New Year, I was sad to hear the news a few hours before that I gunman in Istanbul, Turkey carried out an attack at a night club killing more than 35 people and injuring several dozen. As of this writing the gunman is still at large and a manhunt is on. Although I hope that the gunman is caught or killed, the difficulty in this case is that he or she may have many sympathizers who may hide or have him or her elude police if they can. Partying in a Muslim country even as liberal as Turkey has become a hazardous and dangerous chore and I would advise people to avoid it if they can. Anyway as the New Year ushers in, the U.S. will have a new President elect to look forward to in January and the different policies that it may bring with it. But anyway I wish everybody a very Happy New Year and I hope that there is less violence, less bigotry, less hatred and racial tension and less evil. Hopefully I will be able to blog more this year with your help and encouragement.
