The Daily Word for a New Year

The Daily Word

I'm crawling out of bed on New Year's Day just for you, beloved readers.

But hey, happy new year! Let's all look forward to the year of the swan, the salamander, the e-engagement, the modest sheath dress, the brain, the bros, the pitcher, the light heavyweights and 48 other things proclaimed by writers all over the world.

Somebody made a big mess in Times Square last night. About 50 tons of mess. And somebody else has to clean it up.

If you head out for breakfast today you might notice that your Albuquerque servers are a little bit happier. About a buck fifty an hour happier, in fact.

And the Boy Scouts of America will be slightly more tolerant starting today.

But those opposed to Obamacare will be fuming.

Hey! A lot of people saw a lot of monsters last year. Monsters like big gold fish, suspicious logs in lakes, mangy dogs and a giant squid.

And now I'm going back to sleep.
