Happy new decade!

January 1, 2010

And a reminder of the last time the numbers rolled over, when we were gripped by Y2K hysteria.  Yep, things are always going to the dogs.  As you know, the End is always nigh! And everything good is disappearing…

Along those lines, we have a pre-New Year’s lament by a less realistic writer who is convinced that, as Yogi said once, “nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.”  Add this to the growing list of Friedman-esque, the-world-is-flat fantasies that place no longer matters, just because it matters differently than it used to.
