There's a whole lot of whining going on as we Americans undergo a whole lot of political/social/economic angst.

But must that be so? Can't we tone down our misery and look on the bright side a bit more? We've recently enjoyed a few days of sunshine, less rain, and occasional good news, reported in The Daily Astorian and elsewhere.

I say: Try some random acts of kindness, seek out the positive, and try to smile more. Who knows? You might be able to persuade your spouse, partner, boss, coworker, neighbor, doctor or dentist to treat you with slightly less contempt.
