Black-Eyed Peas, War and Cornbread

One of our continents is ablaze. In the meantime, we have just assassinated Iran's second most powerful man. Are we off to a fine start for a year, a decade, or what?

Hey, all you end of the worlders- I hope the premium on your life insurance is paid up.

Me? I suppose I'm one of the fortunate ones. Neither my teeth nor my savings were designed to last this long. My phone nor my pecker, either, come to think of it.

My allegiance is to no flag, no political party. By the way, whose idea was it to call them "parties," anyway?

My New Year's toast is to love and art; truth and beauty; nature and charity and kindness.

Give us peace on earth and end this dreadful, dreadful war.
