The end of the calendar year is a time to reflect on our experiences of the last twelve months, and to look ahead to what the next twelve have in store. For many, this means getting together with the family, exchanging gifts and sharing stories of the year’s adventures.

He has confirmation of a done deal, and Kafka’s reporting record is outstandingly excellent.
