Not any New Years resolutions this year.  I do have some hopes.  Here they are.

  1. Journalism in America gets serious again.
  2. The Tea Party continues a meltdown.
  3. More movies like "American Hustle" that have great stories.
  4. 20 more lbs. off my aging body.
  5. Some republican leader in NM actually does something to increase jobs.
  6. Religions quit killing people for their deities. (HAH!)
  7. The Albuquerque Journal gets a new editor.
  8. We have little wind this spring.
  9. The drought eases in the Southwest
  10. Reality television shows end.
Pretty feeble list I realize but, things that jumped out at me.

Alas, just a few minutes before reading Hope #1 -- Journalism gets serious again, I read this at another Web site:

"Time Inc. will abandon the traditional separation between its newsroom and business sides, a move that has caused angst among its journalists. Now, the newsroom staffs at Time Inc.’s magazines will report to the business executives. Such a structure, once verboten at journalistic institutions, is seen as necessary to create revenue opportunities and stem the tide of declining subscription and advertising sales."

Happy New Year, Jimmy
