Rally of the Cliff Divers

Not being one for taking a lot of physical risks, I’m still considering taking the dive. After all, the very worse that could happen is that I die. Would it be painful? Maybe. Would it be brief? Definitely. Would it be considered suicide? Not if I expected to live when I leaped.

We see so much hand-wringing about the so-called fiscal cliff. My thought is to go for it and take the leap. What could possibly happen that is any worse than what we’ll be left with if we don’t?
