Dear Bill

When I was learning how to manage a bookstore, one of my mentors told me, "No matter the bad news, always accent the positive." 

I don't want to downplay the pain those of us who are going through layoffs or early retirements brought on economic change or greedy folks who want a bigger bonus. But I think the nonsense we've seen in this election is a bit much for everyone. 

So with this I recommend everyone to treat the links, emails, alerts, or headlines like we do for that aunt who could never see a sunny day despite living in southern California. Just smile and nod and wish them a good day. Another mentor of mine taught me to never let the bastards get you down. 

Remember, we once had someone who took time to write a great letter to his former opponent.
