Weekend Wild Card — 12.29-30.12

I saw "Les Miserables" during my Christmas vacay -- and, yes, it's every bit as good as they say it is. I may take in "The Hobbit" and the latest Bond movie before returning to work on Wednesday. I appreciate the usual swell job that Cindy did in my absence over the last week. I should be able to report a record page-view year by the time we ring in the New Year's Tuesday morning. I'll be starting my 43rd year in the news biz when Tuesday rolls around. And we'll begin our 10th year here at Huckleberries Feb. 16. Here's hoping all of you celebrate a happy and safe New Year's Eve. Now for your weekend Wild Card ...
