Editor’s Note

Tuesday December 30, 2003

Today’s Daily Planet marks a departure from our usual format, in which we have—save for our comics pages and year-end reviews in photographs, editorial cartoons and the BART fare hike notice—turned our pages over to you, our readers. 

When we called for your creations for our year-end edition, we had no idea of the diversity of responses we’d receive, and if your piece isn’t here, chalk it down to the need to bring in the broadest range of work possible in the limited space available. And a special thanks to all our contributors for helping us here at the Planet take some time off for the holiday. 

So sit back, relax, and enjoy. 

And may all our readers enjoy a happy, peaceful, and prosperous new year.
