* The cold-hearted flight of NCAA bowl games from the networks to the cable channels continues. Just a few years ago, my New Year's Day was completely filled with college football. This year I was able to watch...one. That's right, there was but a single bowl game available on network TV. But, hey; it's not all bad. I was able to spend more time starting the year off with good books; specifically, a re-reading for the nth time of Charles Dickens' remarkable "The Haunted Man" and a first time enjoyment of one of Joseph Bottum's sparkling $.99 Kindle singles from Amazon, "Wise Guy."
