Is this sarcasm? I would love it if such a book actually existed...
October 8 is in the past.
I realize this is a blog, and we all have to put up with typos because Dan Savage says they're OK on fast-moving informal blog pages, but sometimes typos can make a pretty big difference, even on interweb-diary sites.
Yesterday I rode the bus around this time (today I'm not, I'm writing this instead). Out of the hundred or so people on the bus, I think I may have been one of five who wasn't a, I'm guessing, a 9th grader? I literally didn't see another adult.
A funny part was when a big stop for exiting came up, and a bunch of the kids began shuffling together. The kid I was standing next to mumbled to the effect, "the floodeth cometh." It was only at that point by the tenor of his voice that I (think I) realized he was in fact a He.
He went and got a vacant seat, as did I. Finally, I noticed a few fellow soon-to-be grey haired people. It felt like October 8th, or the week of October 14th. It's confusing.
a future that is not dark or catastrophic, but one that is full of hope and within our grasp
I'm sorry, but this is a terrible recommendation. Like most Americans, I honestly can't be bothered for anything less than, "dark and catastrophic." Take away the fear, I'm just going to drive my SUV through a stream full of spawning salmon.
fixed it - thanks for pointing out!
