To those of you in Dorchester and the surrounding area, we echo the words of M*A*S*H*'s Col. Sherman T. Potter, who once toasted the 4077th in a New Year's episode of the hit TV program, saying: "Here's to the New Year. May she be a damned sight better than the old one."
To our readers who once called the Dorchester area home but now reside elsewhere, we quote Col. Potter again: "And may we all be home before she's over."
We hope the new year is your best year yet. See you in 2010!
