Great Quote of the Day - Michael Barone

"[W]e live in something close to the best of times, with record
worldwide economic growth and at a low point in armed conflict
in the world. Yet Americans are in a sour mood, a mood that may
be explained by the lack of a sense of history. The military
struggle in Iraq (2,473 U.S. military deaths) is spoken of in as
dire terms as Vietnam (58,219), Korea (54,246) or World War II
(405,399). We bemoan the cruel injustice of $3 a gallon for gas
in a country where three quarters of people classified as poor
have air conditioning and microwave ovens. We complain about a
tide of immigration that is, per U.S. resident, running at one
third the rate of 99 years ago." ---Michael Barone
