I like believing in the little guy. That might be because, more often than not, I am the little guy.
I also like believing in the guy that's the dreamer, although -- more often than I'd like -- I'll have some derisive comment in my mind when I hear about somebody doing something that's a little bit out there.
I'm working on cutting back on my cynicism. That said, self-deprecation is another thing entirely.

Keillor's actually talking about St. Paul, Minnesota, but I think it applies anywhere. You can see the whole clip on ABC news. It's worth a watch.
