Countdown to Glory


By CHRIS MILLSPAUGH

Okay, according to the Mayan Calendar, we all have about six, seven months, tops. If this is so, my question to you is this: How are you going to spend your dwindling time here on earth? Forget your goals, dreams and aspirations because it's too late. What are you going to do until Armageddon?

There's no use in going to work at your job, is there? You don't need to save for the future. There won't be any future. Should you cash everything in and go travel? Why, when anywhere you go is going to end up the same way—rapture? Should you gather your children and loved ones around and get ready to meet your maker? Why? The family members have never agreed on anything, have they? Plus, the results are going to be the same for everyone. Should we all turn to our leaders in Congress and do whatever they deem to be the best solution? Hell, no! They can't agree on anything. Should you hoard a lot of food and gasoline? What does it matter? You still have just a few months left. What are you going to do?

I guess we should all be the best we can be and practice love and understanding so that we might be treated more fairly in the next life. But what if the next life really sucks? Will it really matter if we were all good? I guess it's a personal choice just how you conduct yourself this winter and spring because it's a two-season ball game now. Forget summer and fall, there won't be any. Forget about increasing the population—there's not enough time for normal births. So what should we do?

I believe we should all go to the Community Library and read. It will be quiet and comfortable and you won't have to worry about turning your books in late. The staff members are kind and understanding and they will suggest reading material that should pique your interest. On Thursdays, there will be talks given in the lecture room by those who champion conspiracy theories suitable for anyone to adopt. The series will be called "See?" Anyway, that's where I've decided to be. How about you?

Nice talking to you.
