Thoughts from a guy in the upper deck:
Sure, you got your Nixon, war, environmental despoilation, militant Soviet expansionism and all those other things you never tell the kids about because really, childhood should be a special time where these concerns don't enter into their happy minds, and what's the point because they'll figure it out soon enough and discover there's jack-all they can do about it, because the deck's stacked against the ordinary guy and it always will be. What? Oh, right, despite that, it's still a beautiful world. Yeah. And here's a copyrighted dog and some guy in a Peter Pan suit to prove it. Hey, as long you're on Pollyanna Planet, send me a postcard. Hope no one pushes the button before it gets here.
Does anyone ever look at the future, hope for the best, and wonder if there will be fresh garlands?
