Now is Better

I can’t believe Madison didn’t come up with this idea before the French.

No to 2007!!!: Parodying the French readiness to say "non", the demonstrators in the western city of Nantes waved banners reading: "No to 2007" and "Now is better!" The marchers called on governments and the UN to stop time's "mad race" and declare a moratorium on the future. The protest was held in the rain and organizers joked that even the weather was against the New Year. The tension mounted as the minutes ticked away towards midnight - but the arrival of 2007 did nothing to dampen their enthusiasm. The protesters began to chant: "No to 2008!"

With the Capital One Bowl Victory and the Badgers finishing at school record 12-1 for the season, it may be a good moment to declare a moratorium on the future.
