Happy New Year! As we ring in 2014, let's all take a moment to reflect on how we can make it even better than 2013.

We have a few ideas for St. Louis' 2014 New Year's resolutions. Here are five of our favorites:

1. Get Jeff Mizanskey out of jail.

Jeff Mizanskey has served twenty years of a life sentence without possibility of parole for three non-violent marijuana-related offenses. If he had murdered or raped or stolen, he would be a free man by now. Mizanskey's family and supporters are asking Governor Jay Nixon for clemency, and even the epitomic voice of St. Louis Bill McClellan says he deserves to go free. Give this man his life (and his joint) back.

2. No more horrific animal abuse.
