This post was originally a rant on teaching (I had a bad semester) but I took it down.
I'm over it. Ready to face the next class.

Terrorist Attack

November 1, 2017. NYC. 

Day after a terrorist in a rented moving truck mowed down bicyclists and pedestrians 
on the west side highway, for chrissakes.

Not unexpected in theory since 9-11 and the years past and passed.

A daily thought one swallowed that occasionally surfaces into a bit of what-if fear.
That is now closer to some surfaces.
Here in fact.

Not unexpected, along with bad government (terrible, evil head of our so-called state); tornadoes, hurricanes, floods.

Biblical global warnings. 

Apocalyptic nightmares turning real.
