Issue: December 29, 2011
Greetings SN&R readers,
Christmas is over and so, thank God, is 2011. It
would have been a better year, if not for all the
people who lied and cheated, and pepper-sprayed,
and otherwise damaged their fellow man. You had
your murderous Bashar al-Assad types, along with
your lesser villains; who knew Arnold
Schwarzenegger would turn out to be a sleaze?
There were lots of local scoundrelsand Scrooges,
too. In Frontlines, we've got a list (just a few)
of the Grinches of Sacramento 2011, the folks who
made life just a little less merry for the rest of us. Humbug.
The whole world really was really watching in
2011. But the whole world apparently will watch
anythingand at such a break-neck speed, one has
to wonder: Is anyone paying attention? So, maybe
this year more than ever, SN&Rs 2011 in Review feature matters: It brings you back to the slow,
with its actual printed words on paper and all,
for a crash course in everything, Sacramento and
beyond, you were too busy to notice. Or that you've already forgotten.
Hey, SN&R didn't phone it in and take a prolonged
vacation this winter. Nah. For your reading
pleasure: Jonathan Kiefer and Jim Lane's best
(and worst) of their cinema experiences in 2011;
Jonathan Mendick's New Year's Eve guide No. 2;
Nick Miller's most played records of the year;
Kel Munger and the SN&R critics favorite local
theater picks. And, uh, that's it!
