Even Governments Can Make New Year’s Resolutions

Body
It’s the beginning of a new year. It’s almost the beginning of a new presidential administration, too. In theory, now is a perfect time for some resolutions: to start fresh, fix the mistakes of the past or do what we never got around to doing.

Dear Annie

Body
