Thought for tomorrow

When I was a younger man, I believed that progress was inevitable -- that the world would be better tomorrow and better still the day after.

Yeah, yeah, I know it doesn't take too much mental capacity to conjure up what you're thankful for and put it down on paper. But, frankly, I don't care if it's a cop-out column. Here's my 2010 Thank List, in no order at all:
