Thanks so very much for your continued support, interest, and engagement with the Duck of Minerva. This has been an exciting year for the blog thanks to all of you.

At the same time, 2012 has, like every other year, been a difficult 12 months for many. Our hearts go out to all those who have suffered pain and loss.

May the close of 2012 treat you well, and 2013 prove a terrific year.
