new year's resolution

One only and very mundane
Out the door, that one to maintain
Warm, cold, sunshine or rain
The key is to everyday sustain
And hope life doesn't make it a pain
With this one resolution I will strain
My old, pre-love weight to regain.

My love, you never gained an single ounce
me a pound, every time you did pounce
so this resolution to announce.
On the scale every morning for amounts
Every step, every savory morsel counts
O dear Chocolate, I cannot renounce
Already my resolution I trounce !

The first New Year’s resolution was to entertain, before we enter the fray.
My true New Year’s Resolutions is to decide how to vote on Election Day.
I don’t like any of the offerings, none of them my mind can sway.
Like the Iowa caucus members, my choice is in delay.
I almost do not want to vote at all, don’t want to send our country astray.
Many I have voted for turned out to be duds; voting, simply, is not my forte.
Perhaps some of you can advise how you made your choice, before I enter the melee.

It's probably a happy new year for some McClatchy copy editors and Sacramento Bee reporters based in New Delhi, India. Are you going to have a job when you get back or is McClatchy going to outsource their local news gathering abroad?

Cousin Sonny is reported to be outsourcing 1,100 Georgia Government Tech Jobs to India and now this, it's pretty disenfranchising to be sold out by CEOs & Governors...

Quit bitchin and start a Revolution. Revolutions begin at Home...

Executive Editor Says the Miami Herald to Outsource Some Copyediting, Ad Work to India.

MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Herald is outsourcing copyediting of a weekly community news section and some advertising production work to India, a newspaper editor said Friday.

Starting in January, copyediting and design in a weekly section of Broward County community news and other special advertising sections will be outsourced to Mindworks, based in New Delhi.

The project remains in the testing phase, so it was unclear if or how jobs in South Florida will be affected, Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal said.

Mindworks will also monitor reader comments posted to online stories, he said.

Earlier this month, The Sacramento Bee, also owned by the McClatchy Co., said it would outsource some of its advertising production work to India.

In May, news Web site,, was widely criticized after editors hired two reporters in India to cover the Los Angeles suburb. ------
