I'm really starting to get pissed. How many false apocalypses do I have to put up with in this lifetime? I still recall Comet Kahoutek in 1973. At the time, a number of very scholarly pamphlets showed up at the finer bus stops throughout the greater Los Angeles area -- pamphlets illustrated with cartoon drawings of cities on fire and angels blowing trumpets. These very convincing publications assured us that the comet heralded The End. And did The End happen? No, it did not.
If this sort of thing keeps up, I shall be forced to register a complaint.
