New Year’s Resolution… Wake Up and Fight!

I posted this on New Year’s Eve half a dozen years ago now. As it seems even more appropriate today, I thought that I’d share it again…

I’m not much of one for New Year’s resolutions, but I really like number 33 on this list compiled by Woody Guthrie in 1942… “Wake Up and Fight.” There are a lot of great ideas on the list, but that’s the one that really resonates with me… to the point that I’m almost inclined to say that it’s tattoo-worthy.

If you know of a better resolution, I’d love to hear it.

    These are all great, but today, on the first day of 2017 …#31, #32, and #33 seem particularly poignant.

    Happy New Year, Mark … and thanks for everything you do!

    Salt the ground at Mar-a-Lago.

    Speaking of Woody Guthrie, where’s that machine of his that kills fascists? I’d like to borrow it for a while.
