Yes, Yes, I know, this favorite R.E.M. tune probably got alot of airplay this week. R.E.M., thank you for “the end of the world as we know it.”
Everywhere you look – the news, blogs, Facebook, your favorite water cooler, etc – there appears to be a melancholy haze of extreme disappointment that HERE WE STILL ARE. How is that possible? The Mayan Calendar ended. And, damn if the world isn’t still here! Maybe the Mayas didn’t mean that we would disappear from this earthy place. Maybe, just maybe, they meant we would finally get our act together. Let’s hope.
