It's been a busy, exciting year in the news, and we've done our best to both chronicle and explain it every day. Check out [Jorge Rivas's hair-raising video looking back on all that news--2011 in 90 seconds!](http://colorlines.com/archives/2011/12/the_year_in_racial_justice_2011_v...) It's fun. Today is the last day Colorlines.com will publish this year--we've gotta go spend some time with our families and loved ones. And we've gotta get rested and ready for what will be a busy and significant year, dominated by the national debate over priorities that a presidential election brings. This week, we've published a series of short essays looking ahead to that discussion. If you've missed any, they'll make great end-of-the-year reading, while we're out. Here's a recap: [The Arc Is Bending Toward Justice. But That Doesn't Make Our Work Easier](http://colorlines.com/archives/2011/12/we_must_learn_to_win_in_2012_beca...)
