The knives are out for 2016. According to the conventional wisdom, this past year has been one of the worst in history, and its passing should be celebrated with vigor. Maybe, but there are plenty of reasons why 2016 wasn’t completely terrible.
Sure, a lot of really great celebrities died, but there were dozens, if not hundreds, who managed to stay alive.
The Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series. Hillary Clinton lost another election, and President Obama is on his way out the door. So is Harry Reid. Try to look on the bright side. Next year could end up being so bad we’ll all be pining for the glory days of 2016, so enjoy it while it lasts.
