Does anyone else wonder if the current economic crisis is all in our minds? Michael A. Fletcher and  Jon Cohen give us more evidence of how bad things are in the Washington Post: New Poll Shows 63% Are Already Hurt by Downturn. Deepening recession. People hurt. Eroding finances. Economic decline. Worry.

Doesn’t anyone else believe that feelings are as contagious as the flu? Why do we nurse the negative, when it takes just as much effort to think positively and act constructively?  We are like sheep.
