Nettle Rigsby T-Shirt Hut "1981 is going to be super. How can you have any other attitude? I hope that the ~onomy will improve, because if it doesn't I don't know what the American eOple are going to do. I ~hink we are a little bit late to think about using force to ring the hostages home from Iran. That should have been done at the first. I do elieve they will make it home alive, because there have been too many prayers ~. the American oeonle fnr. them not to make it back When I think of the hostage atuation the first thought I have is the sympathy I feel for the families. Even with ill the problems we have, the United States is the best place to live. Don McCool McCooi's Department Store "I am hopeful, but apprehensive on beth issues, inflation and the situation in Iran. I would like to think that our economy is going to get better in 1981, but don't really think that it will Prices will continue to go up, and it doesn't look like there's much we can do about it. I'm surprised that the hostages are still alive. The situation there is not any better. I hope that when Reagan takes office he can do something but Iran is so irrational - - - how can you solve anything with people like that? I'll bet that is what Reagan is thinking about now.

I don't think things will get any better economy wise until Ronald Reagan has been in office about six months. There won't be any noticible change until then. I expect something to break on the hostage situation in Iran after Reagan takes office. I believe they are still alive and will come home alive.
