We all have a lot of hopes for the new year. Most of them, face it, we can't do anything about. But some are within our power to change, to crush, to eradicate, to blot from the face of the frickin' earth. And in regards to that, I will now make a modest proposal.

How about we all get together and stop bogus tweeting -- and the bogus tweeters who tweet their bogus tweets? OK, it's a small thing. But it would make this world so much better. Because I don't know about you, but the lame, the stupid, the shallow, the foolish and the totally moronic tweets of the past year are still sticking to the bottom of my mind like dirty bubble gum on the bottom of my mental shoes. Get it off! Help!
