I must say for the record, San Diego's weather this year has been splendid. We aren't of the charts hot, nor cold blasting wind off the Pacific right as you get the grill out and are about to cook burgers. It has been great writing weather. The mind is clear, the sky is clear. It's easy to forget the naysayers out there that the planet is in peril.

I have a lofty perch to look down on the economic woes I see around me. I'm retired. I have in-laws, friends, and even old adversaries out there looking and looking for jobs. Here's the way I see the future: America cooked its own goose. We are so in debt, forget about the magic job that pays year 2000 salaries. People are going to have to create their own jobs, build businesses, and tell the politicians to get the hell out of the way. We are going to have to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps now. I'd say take your talents and peddle them into some kind of service or product.
