In 2002, I sat down and posted some random thoughts on Christmas morning at my long-neglected humor site, Monkey Spit. About six months later, the company for which I worked suddenly went out of business, and the intervening decade was marked by bouts of unemployment and other difficulties. The years 2009-2011 in particular were very trying; the economy was down, our income was severely reduced, and it was not a good time. The past year has been a dramatic improvement, so this Christmas has been a welcome change. I recently had occasion to look back on what I had written, and found that I made some pretty good points.
