If you want to have a miserable day, turn to a news program on your TV.

First of all, and I’m not a complainer, I have a complaint.

The text describing what is happening in the world does not stay on long enough for old people like me to read.

If you want to know who was murdered, robbed or suffered terrible mishaps, stay tuned.

I do.

We live in a world that could have many improvements. 

I’ve lived through many that have been made, and are being made.

Progress is always slow, but it has and is being made. If I live long enough, I will see them.

Who knows. Perhaps I will.

I wish you “good luck” and be as fortunate as I am and have been.
