    I’ve noticed the phrases “In these uncertain times” or “In these trying times” being used a lot in the media. Got to have some new clichés for a crisis! How about “in these sucky times”? In these nightmarish times?

    Listening to people talk, all my life, from say 4 years old till now, I’ve never heard anyone say “These are great times” or somesuch thing. Oh, I’ve been around friends and relatives when we are having a good time, but it’s treated as just a pinprick of good times in what is otherwise understood as difficult or trying times.

    Older relatives, friends, neighbors were always complaining about “things today”, “the prices of food today” etc with such lament, but in hindsight the actual indicators/metrics showed them to be much better than today in so many ways. Hearing some of them talk, you’d think the living during the depression was better than in the late 60s and early 70s.
