I literally can’t imagine the exponential increase in the quality of life that awaits my children and grandchildren between today and April 13, 2070. I know only two things. First, I’m working to endow them with equity portfolios which will be the direct beneficiaries of that progress. And second, optimism is the only realism. It’s the only worldview that squares with the facts, and with the historical record.

Tonight, of all nights, let’s bear that in mind. This too shall pass.
