The headline in Saturday’s Toronto Star made no bones about the newspaper’s verdict on the year that ends today:
“That’s enough, 2018. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
The Star was reflecting on the miseries experienced in 2018 in the Greater Toronto Area, but a similar verdict could be rendered just about anywhere. It was a year to be forgotten, a year when we were pounded day after day by bad, often alarming, news.
