FROM BEARS (Barry Neil Kaufman): Yesterday, at the post office, it's raining and cold in the Berkshires. At the window, the post mistress mentions it's "bad" day. I smile, saying: "I'm having a great day...Actually, to be more precise, I am choosing to have a great day." She says she loves that idea. I say: "Good fortune is an attitude, not an event." We talk for about another minute and she asks for an Option Institute catalog.
