Reporter’s Notebook: Starting Off The New Year “Write”

Standard

What annual celebration elicits the most diverse production of writing? January 1st. All those New Year’s Resolutions. I will
do this and I won’t do that.
Some in jest, some in all seriousness. Just remember the world has changed: if you tweet or post it, you can’t hide the crumpled up paper in a drawer and claim it was never made. The whole world is watching.

Speaking of watching, for years while living on the East Coast I’ve watched THE ball drop in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. I vaguely recall the final year of Guy Lombardo, easily recall Dick Clark, and barely bother with Ryan Seacrest providing the entertainment for New Year’s Eve on TV. But I never wondered what people were doing in other parts of the country.

Until this year.

From the Giant Peach to the Big Cheese Drop, did they miss any other good ones?
