Remember the South Florida Perpetual Calendar? This year's version, again totally conceived and executed by yours truly, reflects the realities of the new era, to wit: it's going to be a really rough year.
The Calendar runs in this Sunday's Sun Sentinel as a wraparound front and back cover of the Outlook section, so if you live in our circulation area and want the whole thing in (framable) poster form, be sure to buy a copy, and several more for your friends and relatives, while you're at it.
Meanwhile, since you're discriminating and astute enough to read this blog, you get an advance peek. Just scroll down the right side of the blog to the box that says, "Chan's Galleries," and click on the words, "Chan's 2009 Hard Times Calendar." We here at the Lowe-Down brought all of our technical expertise to bear on the problem, but unfortunately were not able to figure out how to mount a thumbnail illustration in there for you to click on.
I hope you enjoy it. We could all use a little levity.
