Dear Editor: I don't know if the economy will boom or bust during 2020, but I do know this: Since the beginning of 2017, the stock market has set new records and a feeling of optimism floats in the air.
I predict 2020 will be another good year for jobs, wages and the overall economy. On the other hand, I believe politics inside the Capital Beltway will continue to rage like an out-of-control dumpster fire.
In a bold move to help protect my sanity, one of my New Year's resolutions is to slack off on the amount of time I spend watching cable news because watching those programs causes me to spend an inordinate amount of time worrying about things over which I have no control. A more prudent path would be to worry about things I can control. For example — losing weight. On second thought, losing weight may not be a good example of something I can control, but I'm sure you get my drift.
