Wow. Does Maureen Dowd have an amazing job, or what? Not only does the New York Times columnist occupy some of the most exclusive real estate in journalism, she got her editors to pay her way to Denver to score some dope and get high. She sold the junket as a reporting trip. She'd been writing about Colorado's legalization of marijuana and wanted to see how the rollout was going. Makes sense. You don't cover the Super Bowl from your family room TV. But you also don't suit up. And when the rookie doper - called a "noob" in the business - ate her way through an entire marijuana candy bar instead of taking just a bite, she had a really, really bad trip.

First of all, hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough were not only absolutely transparent about the way in which they were piggybacking Maureen Dowd's brilliant Sunday column in the New York Times, they celebrated her and her words.

ARLINGTON, Va. - When the Berlin Wall fell and Eastern Europe escaped from the shackles of communism, I wrote that we must not forget the enablers, apologists and other "fellow travelers" who helped sustain communism's grip on a sizable portion of humanity for much of the 20th century. I suggested that a "cultural war crimes tribunal" be convened at which people from academia, the media, government and the clergy who were wrong in their assessment of communism would be forced to confront their mistakes.

For the first time in the history of crying, it actually helped a woman in the workplace. And Hillary Clinton wasn't even hiding in the ladies room. There she was in a New Hampshire coffee shop - and forever on a YouTube loop - voice cracking, eyes welling and clearly overcome by passion for her work and frustration that she might not be allowed to complete it. That was Monday. On Tuesday, she won the New Hampshire primary in a come-from-behind - no, come-back-from-the-dead - stunner of an upset, making fools of all the pollsters who had predicted her loss to Barack Obama by a double-digit margin.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar - another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: LACONIC The Athenians were a gabby lot, but the soldierly Spartans were people, men mainly, of few words. From the Greek Lakon , Laconia or Sparta, and Lakonikos , we get the English word laconic (pronounced luh-KAHN-ik), meaning terse or concise to the point of appearing rude or mysterious.  Example: From a 1996 column by Maureen Dowd in The New York Times : " We would rather have a smiling, shape-shifting Democrat we don't trust than a frowning, laconic Republican we trust more.

I resolve not to participate in a presidential election all year. No new tattoos. I resolve not to purchase any new technology until I gain an understanding of the old technology. I resolve to follow a low-carb, low-protein, low-salt, low-fat, nonadditive, high-fiber, all-natural, nonprocessed, locally grown, gluten-free, certified organic, noncaffeinated, multicolored, fortified, nutritious diet. This year, I will watch less broadband, narrow-cast, issue-oriented, politically filtered "fair and balanced" infotainment, and continue to boycott "America Idol."
