1999-12-04	The Start of the New Millennium

The year 2000 is nearly here. It is time to settle the question 
everyone asks and no one cares about: When does the new millennium 
begin? 
	One side insists on January 1, 2000. The other side holds 
out for January 1, 2001. The only way to settle it is to 
compromise.
	Therefore, the new millennium begins on July 1, 2000.
	The issue is hereby declared settled.
