Ah, tis grand to see the end of 2008 and feel the fresh breath of the start of 2009! Now, if only Congress and the Federal Government can hold tight and not do anything crazy, perhaps we all will survive the next year. Faint hope I fear.
With the House, Senate and Presidency held by the Democrats I assume we can expect more, not less, government interference in our lives. And this is not good for aviation. With the TSA on the march, and members of Congress chastising bizjet ownership, the economy in shambles and higher taxes coming for the "rich", I suspect things will get tighter for us next year.
Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
"A new year is unfolding—like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within.
Lord, let this year be filled with the things that are truly good—with the comfort of warmth in our relationships, with the strength to help those who need our help and the humility and openness to accept help from others.
As we make our resolutions for the year ahead, let us go forward with great hope that all things can be possible—with Your help and guidance."
