I wish all my friends, casual visitors on this blog,

and even my enemies who follow the blog just to rage at it, a year 2015 full of good surprises. May you discover a great new book, or even a small one, good music you did not know about, or even a simple small painting or sculpture that rejoices your heart. Or, may you fall in love, even if only with a dog.

I have special political wishes too.

Liberals: May your hearts have a collision with rationality.

Libertarians: May you finally confront the central problem of power.

Conservatives : I hope you will stop falling into the traps the bad guys lay out for you. Immigration reform is an example.

My only 2015 resolution is to stop being nice to old hypocrites.

I was going to promise to improve this year my artsy-craftsy skills to make this blog better-looking but I decided the task was too great for me. This will remain a spartan-looking blog. (I am not bragging, I am confessing.)

One more thing. All of you: Buy my book: I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography. See  the reviews on Amazon. Order from there or from me directly at: iusedtobefrench@gmail.com.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.
