It is a placid if not yet happy New Year and I am looking forward to being bored. I know it can’t last for long but with the latest government shutdown, I save a lot of time by not listening to the news. I only listen to the one headline per day: “The government has been shut down for (X) number of days.” I can then turn off the news because there is nothing else important. Yes, there are important things going on in the world outside our borders but as Donny the Grinch says, he is only here to make America grate again. And he is doing that. To do that, the chief needs to mobilize all our resources.
