Re: Why Does Everyone In The U.S. Seem To Be Angry?

"everyone" is so vague. I don't particularly notice anyone angry in the US.
Maybe you are one of those people who just sees things from an angry point of view. People can and do.
Try to relax and stop and smell the roses (as they say).

Re: Update on Hawaiian Airlines new livery?
