Best adieu to 2003: Arthur Sulzberger Jr. In a letter sent out to people receiving the Times 2004 "diary," a traditional year-end digestif, Mr. Sulzberger wrote: "When you consider the hundreds of stories around the globe over the past 12 months that involved war, peace, life and death, all the internal tumult that we had to grapple with at The Times now seems a bit parochial.

"As Bogie told Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca: ‘It doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.’

"What does amount to a hill of beans," Mr. Sulzberger continued, "is how we hold fast to our sense of humor and the respect and dignity with which we treat ourselves and each other. So we turn the final page of one diary and open the first page of a pristine volume that yearns to be filled. May it overflow with stories of joy, accomplishment and fulfillment, from January through December."
