Were it not for a pandemic ….
A couple of months into 2020, I was on track to crown myself pundit of the year. Then came Covid in March to create suffering for so many people — and wreck my annual predictions column. I know: it’s shallow to equate the two. But it’s my best excuse.
This year promises to be no easier than last to forecast, with variables and pitfalls that will defy oddsmakers. But with false humility, I’ll look ahead and assume that like a stopped clock, I’ll get at least one guess right.
