This our first broadcast of the year, and, in the interest of full disclosure, I'm compelled to give you a list of things you probably won't be hearing from me.
First, from the culture front: I'll continue to have no interest in whether Donald Trump did the right thing when he allowed Miss USA to keep her crown. Nor will I lose much sleep wondering if Britney Spears ever found comfortable underwear, nor why Paris Hilton lost her spokesperson job. I didn't even know she had a job.
Nor will I worry about whether body piercing constitutes a personal statement.
From the world of sports: I will continue to have no interest in other people's golf scores. I like golf, but I'm not one who considers it some sort of spiritual experience. That's why we have baseball.
Speaking of baseball, I will continue to have no interest in whether Barry Bonds is treated fairly by the press.
From the world of politics: I will not spend much time wondering whatever happened to former Congressman Mark Foley. He is out of Congress, which is all I need to know.
And finally, I just have to be honest and say it straight: I am not worried whether the new five-day-a-week work schedule is going to be too much of a burden on members of Congress.
I know all these things are important to someone, so I leave it to them to worry about them. I won't.
