What difference ten years makes.
Ten Years in America
(Just a thought)

    Ten years ago life in America was wonderful. Steve Jobs was busy innovating at Apple and giving us all kinds of brilliant new products and ideas. Work was plentiful and employers were hard pressed to find enough qualified folk to fulfill their quotas and deadlines.
      America was optimistically determined; we would and could defeat the terrorist threat easily. Bob Hope was yet once again entertaining our troops overseas. Johnny Cash was still writing and performing songs that were truly of American origins, music and song filled the air. Life was good; all was as it should be.
      Today all three of these fine gentlemen are gone, and now unfortunately America is left without Jobs, Hope, or Cash.
