Internet bubble, Recession, 9.11, Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, North Korea, and now Columbia. Is it just me? Is this part of life on the other side of 40? I don't know when it happened, but I no longer feel that everyday is just another day and I don't mean that in a shiny and bright way. I spent a whole month after 9.11 shocked. Today, I am less shocked, as if I was half expecting it. After all, everyday is no longer just another day. What a crappy day this is. Somebody please turn this burning flapjack over.
