This is the year of the pig. It’s more than that; it’s the year of the golden pig. The last year of the golden pig was 60 years ago, five 12-year cycles ago. That was 1947, the year Joe Vasey was celebrating his 30th birthday – or as we just learned, that was the year of his 4th birthday, because he was born again in a literal sense that not many here have had the occasion to do.
