Is this my very last blog post?

By Francis Moran

I’m not much of one for doomsday predictions.

In the days leading up to January 1, 2000, when the so-called Y2K bug was supposed to affect everything from cellphones to ATMs and would cause both airplanes and elevators to come crashing down, I kept saying that at the stroke of midnight on December 31, 1999, I wanted to be in an elevator, in a highrise, next to an airport, talking on my cellphone and with no money in my pocket. I was pretty sure I was going to be all right. As it turned out, when the clock struck that feared hour, I was at a New Year’s Eve ball with the woman to whom I had recently become¬†affianced, and we were more than all right.

So I can’t get terribly worked up about the possibility that some long-dead Mayan timekeeper was the very first person in tens of thousands of years of human existence to be able to peer far into the future and with such precision and foreknowledge that he or she could accurately predict that the end of the world is going to come tomorrow.
