Can the Twenty-Teens End the Long Suck?

It was three years and a day ago that I waved goodbye to the decade with no name. That decade sucked and in ushering in the new decade, I observed, "We could be in for 3 more years of suckiness before the greatness of the Twenty-Teens can truly reign."

Well, knowing the last 3 years would suck didn't make the suck any easier to bear. But now they are over. I watched the Rose Parade from Pasadena this morning, just like I always did when I was a kid back in the 1970s. People now say the 1970s sucked, but I don't remember that. I thought they were prosperous and fun.

"Oh, the Places You'll Go" was the theme for the Rose Parade, complete with a book reading. And I picked up on this part of the reading, "When you're in a Slump, you're not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done."

It's all about attitude, I suppose, and eliminating the negativity. When I made my list of people to deport with Piers Morgan, it included most of the nightly lineup on MSNBC and Fox News, so I'm done with all those guys.

I'll get my cable news from Erin Burnett, the cute brunette on CNN who knows the value of a dollar, or not at all. Congress, call me maybe when you've actually done something. If you just want to talk incessantly about what you want to do, I'm not listening. La la la.
