Waaah, aaaah. I would feel sorry for her, except the world has always looked somewhat depressing once you wake up and smell the napalm. Viruses have always jumped species (uhm, AIDS?!). The world has always been filled with people who delight in killing each other in spectacular ways. Our future is no more clouded by war, famine, pandemics and other forms of human misery than any other moment in history. In fact, I'd argue, much less so. Yeah, there are probably some difficulties ahead. (I know the real estate market is down and coastal living may change dramatically.)

But I can't think of a time in earth's history thus far that I would rather be looking ahead to. Don't get me wrong. I'm not arguing we're at the dawn of a new age of peace and personal bliss. I just don't think our track record has been great enough to nod in somber agreement with a (albeit, fictional) 20-something Staples employee whining about her future as something f'd up worse than another other 20-somethings future.

Hello. Welcome to incarnation. Enjoy your stay.
