Happy New Year!

Last night I took the family for New Year’s Eve in Times Square for the first time.

And it was more fun than I expected; my expectations were not overly high, but it wasn’t that cold and the mood was bright.

But there was one thing that put a damper on things, and it took about 15-20 minutes for the mood to perk up after that, and that was the overtly political “2014 news montage”.

What a bad idea – a somber tone and bringing up all the fun things from MH370, Ferguson, and Eric Garner…sucked the life out of the crowd. It got quiet. A lame move by ABC to run it then.

Happy New Year to all.
