Keep it positive.
There is always something good or hopeful to report on or bring up for discussion. There
is plenty of griping and despair to go around already, and none of it gets the job done.
Screw reality, stick with the goal of building a better place to live. It will always be
impossible until its done and then the bar will be raised and it will be impossible
again. Fun for all.
