Astronomers must be optimists: you never hear them talk about the Moon being half-empty!
Me, I'm and optimist, too: I'm going to try to get to the Indy 1500 Gun & Knife Show today. Wish me luck -- lines were reportedly up to three hours long yesterday. (And contained at least two quislings; local TV had a couple of attendees with guns for sale remarking that they were okay with universal background checks; the reporters didn't ask if they were "okay" with the additional $35 or more it would add to the cost, or with the national database -- registration by another name -- that it would take to make such a law enforceable.)
ETA: Or not going to gun show this morning: migraine. :(
