THE PRAIRIE EDITOR: A December Surprise?

The year 2020 has certainly been a year of many surprises.
Every year has some, but this one has had more than most.

Election years usually supply a few, but a pandemic arises only

With the pandemic persisting, and in some places resurging,
votes still being counted and recounted, international
realignments taking place globally, and certain medical
breakthroughs being announced almost daily. relief from the
unexpected might seem to be too much to ask for.

Since surprises are by their nature unpredictable, what they
might be cannot be described, nor could we know in advance
whether we will welcome them or not, but 2020 has been a
maverick all year long --- and it is not that difficult to imagine
it has a coda yet to play as it concludes its astonishing and
idiosyncratic performance.

Perhaps not. But the year is not quite over.
