    When so many others get the shaft. 'Problems' with city pension plans have been in the local news lately. And no, I'm not in Detroit or anything.

    My father was from Detroit, though. Thankfully, he doesn't watch much news, so he's shielded from the worst of it.

      Your feelings can go down multiple paths. There's so much room for grief about the state of America and our fellow citizens. But feeling good about parts of life and looking forward to things is also life's due and provides critical motivation. I encourage you to lose yourself in your work regularly, and then snap out of it and repeat the process. Keep delving into things here. Live life and feel feelings as fully as you can. I don't think the contradictions are anything wrong with you. They are suitable for the times we are living in.

      Congratulations and welcome!
