THOMAS MADDEN: America's Days Aren't Numbered.
Nonsense. America is doomed to go down any day now, and it has been ever since I was a kid. At least if you judge by bestselling books . . . . Some earlier thoughts on this subject here.
UPDATE: Of course, if you disagree with me, you could always be bringing your child up to survive the next World War.
But following one of his recommended links I get this customer review: "A 'MUST-READ' to prepare for Y2K Transition!" I wonder what that guy thinks now. Hey, just because all the earlier apocalyptic predictions have been wrong doesn't mean the new ones have to be. And I'm all for disaster preparedness. Just with, you know, a little perspective.
