Pessimistic thoughts

Over on Samizdata, David Carr defends his renowned pessimism by posting this John Derbyshire article. Sad to say, I fear that Messrs. Carr and Derbyshire are correct. A few minutes ago, I logged on to a web news service. The first four items were:
11 killed in Israel.

Bush ready to declare war.

Man with razor blades in shoes arrested at Seattle airport.

China protests against new American Act that regards Taiwan as an ally.

Have a nice day.
