Never at a loss for words, Matt Mittan makes some resolutions in a commentary in this week’s Mountain Xpress. But the talk-show host isn’t pledging to make any changes on his own; instead, he’s offered up some advices, in the form of tongue-in-cheek resolutions, for several local notables.
He advises Mayor Terry Bellamy to keep stoking the fires between Council members Cape and Mumpower, for example. He suggests state Sen. Martin Nesbitt needs to “come out of the shadows” and onto Mittan’s radio show. And he urges Chad Nesbitt to “grow back the mullet.”
Mittan’s a professional talker, but he’s opened the door for the rest of us, whether we’re in the media or not, to offer up some resolutions for the politicians and personalities in our midst.
So have at it: What resolutions would you offer for others in ’08?
