New Year's is an occasion for taking stock and resolving a better future. But resolutions, alas, are a lot easier to think up than to keep.

    Do you have any resolutions for 2007? To stop working for "the man" and go into business for myself. Also, our family is anticipating closure to a four-year legal ordeal that has victimized our mother.

    Name a New Year's resolution that you actually kept. To succeed in my field. After graduating from college last year, I made safety supervisor in a $90 million project and became lead surveyor.

    What's a past resolution you wish you'd kept? Quitting smoking.

    If you could make a resolution for anyone about anything, what would it be? More patience in group dynamics airports, concerts, grocery store lines.

    Suggest a New Year's resolution for the Denver Broncos. Have faith in [Jay] Cutler. Step up their running game.

    What's your biggest worry for 2007? Our education system isn't changing with the times.

    What's your biggest hope for 2007? That we get out of the war and bring our boys home.

    Any resolutions you regret not having kept? Quitting smoking. Less men.

    What's your biggest anxiety for 2007? The war will escalate, and the U.S. will provoke further misunderstandings between world cultures.

    What's your best hope for 2007? More opportunities for adultery.

    Make a resolution for someone else. Bush will just step down and retire to his ranch.

    Do you haveany resolutions for 2007? To quit smoking.

    Name aprevious resolution you wish you'd kept. To quit smoking.

    Name something we should all resolve for 2007. To behave like the movie Pay It Forward, where if someone does something good for you, pay them back by doing something good for someone else later.

    What's a good New Year's resolution for the Broncos? Get a new coach. Maybe go after Fisher DeBerry.

    What's your brightest hope for 2007? People are tired of the war. The 2008 elections will be just around the corner and maybe we'll start demanding a peacetime society and vote accordingly.
