Bill Ayers' New Year's Resolutions

News & Politics
The Rumpus.net is a new website that, to quote it's about page, is "focused on culture with some politics (the subtitle is Books, Music, Movies, Poltics, Sex, Other -- which kind of says it all)." Well, the Rumpus had an interesting scoop on New Year's day: Bill Ayers' resolutions for 2009.

Here are just a few of Ayers' resolutions:


I resolve to step into the unknown, to jump off the edge, to dance the dialectic; I resolve to welcome the new and the now, to learn how to live again and how to love anew; I resolve to nurture relentless curiosity, simple acts of kindness, the vast complexity of humanity, the wild unruly convergence, the poetics of resistance, and the wonder of it all. I resolve to embrace a new world in the making, planetary peace and inner peace, and I resolve, each day in every way, to vote for love -- all kinds of love for all kinds of people in all kinds of circumstances and situations.
