So, today is the big day we’ve been told about, the day a small asteroid passes between the earth and the man-made satellites relaying the transmissions that enable many of us to watch television and surf the Web. That’s very close. Then, first thing this morning, news comes out of Siberia of a giant fireball from the sky, blowing out windows with its sonic boom and leaving a smoldering crater. I’m not prepared to say these events aren’t a conincidence, but I am prepared to say they’re a helluva coincidence!
Speaking of Eurasia, the old A&J cartoon above was drawn in early 2005, during my brief sojourn to la Maison des Auteurs in Angoulême, France. Notice the European influence evident in the window sill in the first panel. Hope to see you Monday!
