    I hear what you're saying, but see it as a matter of degree. There is such as thing as "blind cynicism", which is just as dysfunctional as "blind optimism". I see cynicism as a good thing, in moderation. Ideally, you're bullshit detectors are fully operational but you're not so disgusted that you just give up and stop fighting.

    Since it's my theme for the day, here's another Carlin quote:

    "Scratch any cynic and you will find a disappointed idealist."

    "Tell the truth and run." -- Yugoslav proverb
