The Vanity of Earthly Greatness



Everything that you think is the ultimate in cool will be a laugh riot to your kids.

Everything that you think is the ultimate in cool will be quaint nostalgia for your grand-kids.

The same will happen to your kids and grand-kids, and so on forever.



It's the end of the semester and I'm cranky.

On occasion one can attain "classic," intoned, however, with an edge of amused dubiousness.

If you live long enough, you'll see it become the Ultimate in Cool again: here's to Health & Long Life! :-)

That's quite okay - what my students think is the ultimate in cool is a laugh riot to me. :-)

Mainline protestantism will be half of its current percentage of the US population by 2030¨ Anonymous Coward

Well, if that´s true you can count on the grandstanding Protestant bigots at Megaasylums will have blown their places of herowhorship down (and most likely the decendents of grandstanding theieves from CANA and the ACNA will have forgotten their blood drenched origins in Africa and become outright atheists...finally).

"Anonymous Coward" is Brad Evans, our troll. Mainline Protestantism is one of his fixations.
I suggest that he speaks for no one but his own obsessions.

I usually zap his comments before he gets any notice. He wore out his welcome here a long time ago. He's the whole reason why I have comment moderation.
