Two days ago, while driving home from work and listening to an NPR report on starvation in Africa, I realized that if we were living in a horror movie — one where the world falls apart in a short period of time — July 31 might have been the day it dawned on folks that something sinister was going on.
1) The blackout in India, due to massive power failures, meant 600 million people were without power.
2) Crop circles found near Wilbur, Wash. Crop circles, though likely the work of merry (human) pranksters are thought in some circles to be the work of aliens.
If there is ever an end-of-the-world event, do you think it will unfold like the movies? In a matter of just days or weeks? Or will it be a long process we understand only at the last moment?
Bang or whimper? (To paraphrase T.S. Eliot)
