"It's the End Of the World As We Know It..."
By Cassandra D
Well isn't this just a grand summer?
When it began we already had plenty on our plate, what with Iraq, Afghanistan, and the assaults on liberty and justice by the Bush administration.
What's happened since? Plenty of nothing good.
- North Korea and Iran crank up the volume on their saber-rattling.
- An Inconvenient Truth informs me that large areas of our planet may be inhospitable to human life by the time I would hope to have any grandchildren. By then, polar bears may have been drowned and starved into extinction. My beloved Never Summer Mountain Range may have lost all its snowcaps. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera...
- As if we didn't have enough to worry about, we now get a giant crisis in the Middle East, with its currently popular and ever so hopeful title, "World War III."
- When those awaiting The Rapture are filled with joy, perhaps it's time to get worried. Let's just hope that they are as tuned in to reality as were the members of Heaven's Gate.
Happy "Doom & Gloom Monday," everybody!
