Locking your door in 2004

I've never been a big believer in "New Year's Resolutions." I figure if you're going to resolve to do something (or not do something) waiting for a new year to is really just an excuse to procrastinate.

But when I look back over the last year and consider some of the security issues we faced, I think that a few resolutions for this new year may just be appropriate: not only to keep us from making the same mistakes over again, but maybe to expand our sphere of influence and do the same for those around us as well. To many, these suggestions may seem obvious and even common -- however, the events of 2003 show us that they are not being adopted.
