One of my New Year’s resolutions was to watch less television. I know this may seem like an odd objective for someone in my profession and, believe me, in a few short days I have already made a complete mockery of that goal. That’s what makes this particular resolution such an ideal choice for me. I like to set my sights on promises that I have neither the ability nor the inclination to keep, then dump them at the same time as the Christmas tree. That way, come April, I’m not still agonizing with my conscience.
