I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! As I expressed to one commenter, it doesn’t matter whether you celebrate or not, because Christmas is for all men, coupled with peace and goodwill. It says exactly that in the Holy Scriptures.

Politically speaking, 2024 is already happening, and the usual posturing and shenanigans that goes along with it: from the latest removal of former President Donald J. Trump from the Colorado primary ballot, to former U.N. Ambassador, former South Carolina governor, and presidential candidate Nikki Haley firmly planting those heels in a smelly pile of you-know-what because she couldn’t adequately answer a question on the Civil War, to a huge win for independent professionals with the tanking of the nomination of Dep. Labor Secretary Julie Su.

But the majority of us are focused on reassessing and wrapping up what’s left of 2023, the holiday reflections and recalibration of direction that the end of a year brings.

Happy New Year’s weekend for this final Week That Was of 2023.
