December 1997

Time flies much quicker than we ever could know. Usually. For an entire week last month I was down and out with pneumonia. In that instance, time was going nowhere fast. Let's just say my employer wasn't a bit happy...

"Boss? I'm sorry to have to do this to you, but I really won't be able to work tomorrow." "Nope. You can't have it off." "Umm... I have pneumonia and a doctor's note to prove it." "Oh. [insert really long pause here] Well, I guess I'll have to find somebody else." That's what I was thinking.

So, anyway. Back to my oh-so-thrilling discussion. As a reader, you should already be aware that our fine online publication turns two years old this month. Wow. That doesn't seem that long at all... Just what else DID happen two years ago?

I guess two years doesn't seem that long, huh? Okay, so how about something a little further back? Say... 25 years ago? Surely, it can't be THAT long ago, can it?

I wish you all the happiest Holiday Season, and I look forward to seeing all of you again in 1998.
