|If 13 is an unlucky number, what about 2013?|
That's the good news; the bad news is that in light of their eleventh hour solution, one wonders just what the heck our lawmakers have been doing up until last night, but I guess it's best not to know. Cliff-wise, the desperation to keep the story alive among the media is palpable, with each and every journalist assuring us that, despite the apparent agreement, there are still plenty of sticking points. As CNN's Wolf Blitzer promised us, "this is not over." Phew, that's a relief!
Thus informed, here are my New Year's resolutions:
1. Pay no attention to the media.
2. Ignore irrational fears.
3. Snowshoe as much as possible.
