Doom and Gloom AP: America is 'spinning out of control'

This is what happens when AP needs ratings: Everything seemingly is spinning out of control

(AP)-"Is everything spinning out of control? Midwestern levees are bursting. Polar bears are adrift. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Home values are abysmal. Air fares, college tuition and health care border on unaffordable. Wars without end rage in Iraq, Afghanistan and against terrorism...

The can-do, bootstrap approach embedded in the American psyche is under assault... Even so, a battered public seems discouraged by the onslaught of dispiriting things. An Associated Press-Ipsos poll says a barrel-scraping 17 percent of people surveyed believe the country is moving in the right direction."

"The country is moving in the wrong direction" equals "We have lots of problems and are out of control?" Let's go down the list.

1. Levees are bursting. True but this isn't exactly the hot topic of conversation down at the cafe.

2. Polar bears are adrift. Not true. So far, I've seen one image of a polar bear adrift on an ice chunk. One. Someone, anyone show me this happening.

3. Gas prices. Very true, this is out of control and destroying our otherwise pleasant economy.

4. Home values. Not hurting me, or anyone I know.

5. Air fare, tuition, health care. I'm doing fine on each. I'll be paying tuition and health insurance with no problem.

6. Wars in Iraq. They're getting better. Deaths are way down, things are looking up. Except that Iraq is selling its oil to countries besides us.

Doom and Gloom AP is probably feeling blue because newspaper ad revenue has plunged, sparking fear in the big media. Bad news for them, good news for me and you.
