Forgot to wish readers a Happy New Year . . . so, Happy New Year to one and all! 2021 is off to a rocky start -- what with Congressional shenanigans re: the election-that-wouldn't die and COVID surging worldwide -- but we do have some vaccinations taking place and the ocean hasn't swallowed any cities whole (yet).
Side note: George Carlin would likely be rooting for COVID (e.g., see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHHqy3cNMuk).
Anyway, it's a new year. Maybe this will be the year of the technological singularity and AI will run amok. Who knows what could happen? The mind boggles at the possibilities.
And what does any of that have to do with Jack Kerouac, you ask? Nothing except everything, as he was a keen observer of the human condition and it would be quite interesting to get his take on current events (as it would Carlin's).
Well, it's time for the noon local news fix. God save us all....
