I'm still working on the final installment of my "message map for skeptics" series of posts, but we'll take a moment out for a musical interlude.
By almost any measure, life today is so much better than it was twenty, fifty, eighty or a hundred years ago. And yet most people seem to think its worse and getting worse by the moment. In my new song, "The Good Old Days," I take a look at this phenomenon and try to make a bit of a case for why I think things are better now than ever before (not perfect, mind you - we've got plenty of problems. But, man, the opportunities that my kids have today versus what their grandparents had are mind-boggling!).
