I don't know if it's the season or events related, but I'm tending towards feeling funky. It's been a waste of beautiful weather.

Is this a common symptom? Should a young man find himself already worn down by the doldrums of lower middle-class life? What future am I anticipating?

I have been reading, "Lies My Teacher Told Me," and James Loewen (the author) has some really interesting thoughts on American's view of progress. He claims that we're a people who equate moving forward with getting better, but often we regress while only feeling as if we are moving forward. For example, Obama was to be a progressive president, yet we're not holding him accountable for failing to live up to those promises. It's not so much actual progress we crave, just the ideology.

On an unrelated note, kudos to Levi's for creating an ad campaign that appeals to me. I don't know who came up with the 'Pioneers' thing you're doing, but I like it.
