Monday Musings - December 31, 2012

1. This is it--the year is too rapidly drawing to a close.

2. With the ending of the NFL regular season yesterday and without the NHL to keep me sane, I am about to enter sports purgatory: The time between football and Spring Training for baseball.

3. I'm still writing my New Years resolutions, but I did note how empty the fitness club was on Friday. I expect it to be very full on Wednesday morning as everyone attempts to improve their overall fitness which is a laudable goal.

4. I've decided to stop receiving emails from a company which began its recent email to me as follows: "According to recent reports we’re worse off now than we were 30 years ago." It may be true, but I know I'm better off now than I was 30 years ago.

5. Congress still has not been able to overcome petty partisanism to solve the fiscal crisis and keep the country moving. I know the elections were just last month, but can we recall our representatives and do it over again? Something needs to change.

6. I am concerned--the pursuit of special interests had apparently destroyed our ability as a people and a society to reach compromise.

7. Partiers tonight should remember that drinking and driving does not reflect a mature decision.

8. Happy New Year everyone. May the year ahead be full of promise and blessing.
