New year, new president, same old problems

-A A +A
By The Staff

Some people might categorize me as a skeptic. Maybe I am but I am in agreement with good old Benjamin Franklin who reputedly said, “Don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.” This philosophy was probably a result of inventing the bifocals.

My personal history has shown that every time I get my hopes up they are soundly dashed to the ground in disappointment. I often refer to myself as an optimistic-pessimist; I know for sure things are going to go wrong. And, I am rarely disappointed in that aspect of life.

The month of January represents to many people a whole lot of new things.

For one it is a brand-new year never yet lived, therefore there is an awful lot of hope among many people. Some people have the idea that some kind of magic takes place between the last day of the old year and the first day of the New Year. With this comes an expectation that things will be different this year.

The only difference between December 31 and January 1 is sleep deprivation resulting in somebody dropping the ball. This may account for all the high hopes and the New Year’s resolutions people entertain.
