Doug J over at Balloon Juice seems to see things about the way I do, but he’s clearly much further along in dealing with it in terms of the stages of death. I’m still bouncing around between depression/acceptance/anger-type attitudes.

I always skip right through denial in like no time with no trouble.

Update: I mean, think about it. If you really believe the U.S. is circling the drain in some critical ways, isn’t there a way to figure out how to survive it, if not actually capitalize on it?

That’s the American Way, you know.
