I have been called many things, rarely an optimist. But I feel that I am. when living overseas, I ran across an Eastern European who I was talking current events with, when she made the statement:
"that is what is wrong with all you Americans. You always hope for the best while the rest of us always expct the worst."
Anyway. The newest edition of the Carnival of the Optimists (#18) is out. take a minute to visit and see what other optimists have to say. My "Buy American" post was highlighted.
Thanks to Boxing Alcibiades for considering the piece worth reccomending.
