Five Years Gone
The political blog Hot Air features in its "Headline" section, an article by Michael Gerson of the Washington Post entitled "Pulling loved ones out of the lure of suicide." There was an interesting remark in the comments section:
I just moved back from five years of living in Latin America. Boy has this country changed. People are very discouraged, depressed and down. This isn’t good. This isn’t the way I remember people or things…I hope things turn around soon.

The next comment had a predictable response, given the setting. I'm wondering if it isn't more than that.
