What I've noticed..... a sinking feeling in the pit of my belly when I think about our economy, our dependence on oil, our dwindling natural resources, a sadness when I think what our children will inherit, and my lack of faith in the folks who "run" this country.... sorry - no comments on traffic being lighter or prettier skies - don't mean to ruin your Sunday with my angst - maybe I should go back to bed and pull covers over head??? (I would be cheerier if I weren't in between jobs...)

I feel the same pc... it is what the world has become and it was all done without out much fore thought of the consequences. Now we all pay the price in one form or another. Cheer up girl-friend!!! There is always HOPE!
