I almost felt depressed after reading the newspaper last night. If doom and gloom gets you going, you are onto a winner. Page after page of bad news and sad news, unnerving tales of a rising tide of crime and economic woe. To top it all there was a piece on Nostradamus and his prediction that world war III will start this year. The only saving grace was a tiny article in the bottom left hand corner of page 15, about a lost cat that found its way home. Whoop-de-do.
