A Lufthansa Airbus A380 at San Francisco International Airport this afternoon. None of the US airlines has actually bought any of these magnificent flying machines. The A380’s sales have been somewhat disappointing, in part due to the 2008 financial crisis.

So is it the Year of the Sheep or the Year of the Goat? Or even the Year of the Ram? One sees different interpretations.   Apparently they are all correct, depending on the context, or even one’s own preference.  I will go with goat – since that is what the Chinese word  yang meant in ancient times.  Check out the National Public Radio on-line article Whatever Floats Your Goat.
