Decline

As you all (all 5 of you) know, I love a good-old american fall from grace.  My favorite so far, and what I believe is the platonic ideal, is the movie "Overnight" -  a must-see for those of you who appreciate comeuppance.  I'm not sure how I feel when it comes to the decline of our fine country though.  That being said, this article rings true.  It makes the point that our government is actually a really old organization, way older than most - and most organizations don't last that long without going stale and failing.  It kind of leaves you feeling somewhere between total hopelessness and cautious optimism, which - honestly - is better than I feel about "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day."
