It’s the first weekend of the new year, and that means a whole new year of parties, dinners, and random encounters where you may need to sound like you have any idea what you’re talking about. If your New Year’s resolution was to make people think you care about current affairs, even though you don’t, you’ve come to the right place.
As always, the full weekly edition of Steal My Opinion is only a buck a week, and is sent every Thursday afternoon, just in time for the cocktail party circuit.
