Today is the day I was not going to disappoint @RonSupportsYou, who, as his nom de Twitter implies, is a positive and hopeful person. Which probably means he is used to disappointment.


Ron, one of my earliest Twitter followers, sent me a series of messages a few weeks ago that read:

“You are entitled to write whatever type of column you like, but maybe it is time to write a positive column, as a change of pace.

“Maybe there is something happening now that is good, that you are enthusiastic about. Let us know in a column.
