We're planning to relax tomorrow, and hope you can too. If major news breaks over the long weekend, we'll of course jump back in to the blog. But if all goes as planned, we'll see you back here Monday.

Of course, NPR.org will still be operating. Morning Edition, All Things Considered and the NPR Newscast will be on the air.

Meanwhile, Happy New Year to all. And since it's that time of year to think about what lies ahead, here's a question. It can be taken many ways, obviously, but what's your overall feeling about 2011? As always, feel free to discuss in the comments thread.
