Holy Cow! (to quote Harry Caray) the curse of the billy goat that was on the Chicago Cubs, has finally been broken, and I am glad to see it. I remember the ’69 Cubs with Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, Ron Santo and crew making a run for the playoffs and then getting it all derailed by the Miracle Mets (yes, I am very old), so I was happy to see the Cubbies finally winning it all. It seems to be giving new hope to Blue Team fans as well.
Some think that Doomsday may be much closer after the Tuesday elections in the United States. For the record the Doomsday clock stands at 3 minutes to Midnight, so there isn’t much more wiggle room here, in terms of “the big boom”. Let us hope cooler heads prevail, and whatever happens on Tuesday, it doesn’t create the “Biblical Apocalypse” that some have promised. In other good news, the new Russian Satan II Missile can’t wipe out Texas or the UK as previously advertised (well, not just 1 of them). Reading that helped me sleep better (sarcasm).
Evidently there is no such concept as a “No Fault Divorce From Europe”, as the UK PM is finding out. Should be interesting to see where this winding road of interesting quandaries leads.
