Quite a mix. An effort to fill out a score card (good news or bad news) of the articles raises questions about the mind set of the scorer - be they liberal or conservative - and indicates broad differences of opinion - or perhaps the gap between optimists and pessimists.

A most interesting post. I like it. Will you make it a regular feature?
