New Years Notes

I hereby resolve to blog more often this year. That’s my only resolution.

According to a squib I read in the Wall Street Journal, 2005 was apparently the first year since 1962 in which there were no bank failures in the U.S. Not sure what it means, but it was handy for cocktail party chatter.

On yesterday’s radio broadcast, Paul Harvey reported the tidbit that the 831 members of the British Parliament (831?? Can that be right?? That must be Lord and Commons members together. . .) consume 800 pints of liquor a day. He thought that amount considerable. I think it means at least 31 members of Parliament aren’t doing their part; they should average at least one pint a day per member.

Hear, Hear!

But speaking of those that "aren’t doing their part," WHERE IS VOLUME II, of that seminal work, THE AGE OF REAGAN?

I’ve recommended Volume I to one and all. And am becoming impatient awaiting Volume II.

Um. . . it’s coming. . . eventually.
