"Whenever I get to fretting about my own personal situation, I compare myself to the rest of humanity. Is there a luckier time or place in all of history to have been born than in the United States in the second half of 20th century? The answer is so obviously "no" that it cheers me right up! Not just born on third base, but born knowing what the heck third base is. Does it get better than that?
I submit that it cannot.The Fourth of July is our real day of thanksgiving."
