“Have you made a resolution?” my wife asked. Had not.

I hereby vow to write less in the new year about things I don’t care about – sports that vanished in my rear-view mirror years ago. Just because the web is an endless maw doesn’t mean we should try to fill it, minute by minute.
For a while, I’m going to lay off Donald Trump and Pete Rose (who may, in fact, be the same person.)
Plus, any web site that inserts 15-second video commercials is getting X’d out of my queue. That’s not why we learned to read and think, to watch stuff jump around.
