It all starts at 5:30 p.m. with the Rec Rockers (dancers between the ages of three and five) taking the stage to wow the crowds and warm them up for the really big show, the Parade of Lights, which starts at 6 p.m.

Selections From the Past Four Years of 'Arc'

Why a retrospective?

Believing as I do that history is of profound importance, I seek to discern the purposes and themes I have explored with constancy over the years of publishing this column. I hope by doing this to present a coherent statement of the issues and interests that have stirred current events in culture, politics, economics, ideology, science, and religion over the course of four years of writing this column.

Please bear with me readers, as I cut and paste paragraphs from past Arcs.
