The news is so depressing. We have, at best, a heavy-handed government; at worst the Mafia is running the country. The health care system is only going to get worse (avoid asking me about the care one of my elderly relatives is receiving on the Left Coast… avoid it if you want a life outside of listening to my rant). And it seems that North Korea is actually threatening the United States. The economy stinks. We’re buried in snow. Could all this really be happening?
To cheer you up, might I suggest going with your sweetie to see Silver Linings Playbook? Quite entertaining.
