May you be safe from the idiots who think gravity is just a theory and fire off guns, failing to understand that what goes up will come down. [The Miami Herald covered this today]

Given the prevalence of accurate timekeeping devices, it is amazing that the explosions that are supposed to signal the new year extend for a four hour period beginning before and extending well after the actual event. Anyone who thinks alcohol and gunpowder is a recipe for a long life should be avoided by insurance agents.

The new year brings new opportunities, so here’s hoping that the good wins out and the world is made a little better.

Oh, and a happy 10th blogiversary to Steve Bates at the Yellow Something Something.

And a very Happy New Year to you, Jill, although it looks like we are both celebrating in the rain.

Happy New Year, Bryan!

As I heard the first “cannons” go off last evening I thought exactly the same thing.

And we don’t even live in a Tea Bagger neighborhood!

Hmmmm.

Thanks for your reporting!

There is always a possibility, OWL, but I won’t be betting on it.

Maybe someone could sell them shoes with a target pattern on the toes so we will know where the bullets are going. I wouldn’t recommend shooting into the ground around here as the maroons are apt to hit a gas line. I guess it would be too much to ask that they use blanks. Suzan, the state of New York finally had to list police warning shots under the Reckless Endangerment charge to stop cops from doing that, and they are supposedly trained in firearms safety. Apparently the risk of going to prison stopped the practice state-wide.
