Good News: Nov. Real Consumer Spending Increase Sets 3-Year Record; Biz Press Stays Downbeat |

"The one positive report that I saw was written by the New York Times's Jack Healy; the headline is actually 'Consumers gain more purchasing power.' The only place I could find it was in Google cache; the Kansas City Star, which originally published it, no longer has it. It appears that Healy's employer, the Times, never ran it.

It's hard not to think, especially based on the preceding paragraph, that optimism is forbidden -- until, oh, maybe a week or so after after Barack Obama's stimulus package passes."
