“BE AT WAR WITH YOUR VICES, AT PEACE WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS, AND LET EVERY NEW YEAR FIND YOU A BETTER MAN.” Benjamin Franklin
It has been a long time since I went out on New Years
Eve, so my vices have drastically been put into memory. If I have a vice
left it is shooting off my mouth with my opinions here. I thank all of
my readers who have been so supportive. I started this venture back in
2011 with the disclaimer that I now will repeat. It is good to remind
everyone about my philosophy every now and then. It so happens that this
column is going to be seen by more people this year and this repeat will
help out all my new readers and remind everyone else.
