Here’s a thought to get 2021 started. If modern medical science can whip up an effective vaccine for a stubborn, elusive virus in a matter of months, couldn’t that same kind of burst of energy, funding and know-how eradicate, or at least tame, cancer?

To the Editor

We were pleasantly surprised that the Dec. 23 edition of the QCT arrived at our home on Thursday [Dec. 24]! The paper usually arrives on the Friday after publication or the following Monday. It was one of those things that made our day, especially during COVID. A Christmas miracle, considering the postal backup! Thanks to all the QCT staff for all your hard work!

Did you observe the old Irish New Year’s tradition of opening the back door just before midnight to let the old year out, and then opening the front door to welcome the new year?

This street and a nearby park are named in honour of painter, engraver, ceramist and sculptor Jordi Bonet (1932-1979), who was born in Barcelona, Spain.

At the age of seven, Bonet lost his right arm in an accident. Art then became his refuge. At age 20, he already owned his own studio and exhibited with much older artists.
