No, I think they have it all wrong. It may have something to do with the fact that jobs are hard to find, not that you have one!

People are more depressed right after Christmas. The weather is bleak, the nights are long and sun-depriving, the credit cards are maxed, gasoline prices usually begin rising again, and most of the pre-holiday fantasies didn’t materialize. Any politician tied to the status quo is going to face a lot of grumpy voters.

Just looked at the latest MA polls. So far it’s tough to imagine a happier day.

Blue Monday?

The wife and I are having a late lunch at Hooters then taking our kid who has the day off bowling. Then buying some spirits for a Tuesday celebration of a Brown victory. And its sunny and spring like here in the Northwest. All in all I would say its a great day!
