The future has become a math problem, one of probabilities.
I have little idea of what may happen during 2010, and even less expectation that whatever it is will turn out well. My devout hope is that it continue to provide us with a chuckle now and then.
But there are those who do make these annual guesses. I've a list of quite a few here, for your entertainment. I suggest you start with Michael Panzner's warm and fuzzy outlook, then check out a few of the others.
