Greetings, all! Our blog is open again for business, after a longish break over the winter holidays made possible by the need for construction workers to be in the building doing messy and noisy things. So, let’s take a look around, shall we, and see what all the denizens of the various caves and crannies we poke into have been doing while we were pulling a Rip Van Winckle. So, first. The Mayan apocalypse did not occur, in case you didn’t notice. All the dorks and losers who allowed themselves to be suckered by the hoopla over this came up dead wrong. But, fear not. I’m sure there’s a new circus about to roll into town with another pseudo-scare. I’m betting on the planet Nibiru or Nimubu or whatever. You know, the undiscovered planet that NASA won’t let any astronomer discuss, as if that had ever stopped a talky academic, especially one with a discovery. As if we didn’t have enough real stuff to be scared of. We have to go around dreaming up crap! Well, that’s just the way we are.The usual Year in Review shows went on, and they were all pretty dreadful, largely because the year was pretty much a stinker, truth be told. Wars, disasters, “celebrities” doing foolish or disgraceful things, drought, betrayals, sell-outs, Did I mention “celebrities”? Politicians dressing up in 18th century clothing, wigs, etc and standing around sweating and miserable in DC heat/humidity. The usual antics, only more so.
So we’re at the same old stand. All the best in the coming Twelve. I’m crossing my fingers for us.
