Next time I need suggestions for resolutions, I'll ask you. And it's a good thing I was talking specifically about you when I talked about parenting. What do I care about your parenting? ---- Original Message ----- From: Stan Spiegel To: lit-ideas@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: 12/29/2005 7:38:46 PM Subject: [lit-ideas] Re: New Year's Resolutions I suggest two New Year's resolutions, Irene. 1) Work at showing empathy 2) Learn a little more about Israel so your opinions are well-informed, not anti-semitic. Seeing you in an anti-semitic light makes me sad. I don't want to see you that way. Watching more television isn't going to help you. The death and destruction that's rampant on tv dramas won't help you break out of the "Dover Beach" mentality you evince.

I don't drink (not enough to matter), don't smoke, don't have any weight to lose, and don't jump on the furniture. So, my New Year's Resolution is ... watch more television.
