...when Associated Press did its latest poll. This time, the subject was 2007, and AP reports that "...seventy-two percent of Americans feel good about what 2007 will bring for the country, and an even larger 89 percent are optimistic about the new year for themselves and their families...."
That's good to know. Really.
Nothing would make me happier than to think that 89 out of 100 Americans are going to have a better life by the end of next year. Well, I'd be happier still if all of those I care for are about to have the best 12 months of their lives.
And yeah, I admit I wish I wasn't among the 11 percent.
It would be very difficult for the next year to top this one misery-wise. I messed up plenty of times, and when I wasn't busy fouling the nest there were people willing and eager to do it for me.
You'd probably find them among the 89 percent, too.
