Do you realize that we are 3/4 of the way through 2009? One-quarter of the year left, and then we are finished with the first DECADE of the 21st century? We're coming to the end of a decade, people. I find that astonishing. How is this even possible? A very strange decade, the 2000's.
For more information that will freak you out slightly, check out the Beloit College Mindset List for this year's college freshman class, the class of 2013 (most of whom were born in 1991. 1991, people! Inconceivable!) A couple of highlights for me:
* Most communities have always had a mega-church.
* The status of gays in the military has always been a topic of political debate.
* Everyone has always known what the evening news was before the Evening News came on.
And that's the way it is.
