"...and I Feel Fine"

Photo of the Yesterday: An unfinished hallway at 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza, 23rd floor.


Apparently, the world is supposed to end tomorrow, and by "end" I mean a nuclear holocaust, in which only the members of Yisrayl Hawkins's yahoo cult will survive. So it really wouldn't be the "end" of the world, just that the world would be a crispy place for roaches and other insects to roam free. Then again, I'm sure there are places that are not on anybody's nuke map, such as Antarctica, most of Africa, Australia, South America... Ok, so it would be the end of the world for the northern hemisphere. Not really the "end" you understand, I mean, the cities would get hit, so I'd be "up a certain creek without a certain instrument" as Edmund Blackadder once said, but there's lots of land in between. Can't see anyone bothering to toast the cornfields of Iowa, (unless they wanted popcorn, that is.) How about Europe & Asia? You wouldn't be able to have a nuclear war without Russia - that would be rude - but there's a lot of land there. The U.S. has tons of nukes, but we can't be expected to cover everything! Still, I'm sure the radioactive levels would go down in a few decades or so. The question is, what will Hawkins and his followers do in the meantime? How far does the sphere of protection around their compound go?

And who will finish the 23rd floor?

In the meantime: Eat, Drink and be Merry. Let's hear it for hedonism.

We must not allow there to be a mine shaft gap.
