New Year’s Resolutions

Here are Woody Guthrie’s New Year’s Resolutions from 1942.  Sure, the list is a little silly, with the cartoons and entries like “Wash teeth if any,” but hidden in there is some of the best wisdom since Ecclesiastes.  If you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution, you could do much worse than “Love Everybody,” “Read Lots Good Books” or “Save Dough.”  And those of you hoping to lose weight should follow Woody’s advice: “Eat Good — Fruit — Vegetables — Milk.”  If you’re a little more ambitious, maybe you can “Beat Fascism,” this year.  For me, I think I should just try to “Work More and Better,” where writing is concerned
