Be at war with your vices;
At peace with your neighbors;
and let every new year find you a better
Have a happy and prosperous new year.
And hopefully you have followed our number one rule of trials: never ever ever set a case for trial for the first week of the new year. Judges and prosecutors return with new year's resolutions of getting tough on crime and trying more cases and handing out harsher sanctions dancing in their heads like visions of candy canes and free drinks and meals.
