The Sky is Falling, the Sky is Falling!

 

CNN has a story about the coming crisis in 2013.  Well, ahem, what’s new?  Aeschylus noted centuries ago that the gods create catastrophe so men will have something to talk about.  Our media is crisis-oriented and if a crisis could not be construed from time to time from world events, the media would melt down.
Now, I know things are pretty bad out there.  I have worries too.  In fact, today I’m really worried.  But, “been here, done that” and I know that “this too shall pass.”  This is true for me personally but for us collectively.  We just have to keep on truckin’, just continue to “chop wood, carry water.”
