Garry and Marilyn Armstrong are “friends” we’ve met through the blogosphere. This piece by Garry seemed well-suited for the Views from the Edge readership.
SERENDIPITY: SEEKING INTELLIGENT LIFE ON EARTH
“Yesterday is another country, all borders are closed.”
It was a wonderful piece of dialogue from “MidSomer Murders.” In the episode, Chief Inspector Barnaby is questioning a murder suspect about his whereabouts the previous day. The suspect tries to dodge the questions with thinly veiled irony. “Yesterday, Chief Inspector, is another country. All borders are closed.” Barnaby ultimately opens the borders and nails the suspect. Still, I liked the perp’s style.
As we begin the new year, many folks around the world are thinking about the events of the past 12 months. Here, in the United States, many of us think of 2016 as another country with all borders closed. We don’t want to recall the epic long Presidential campaign and its result. We’ll have to open those borders in less than three weeks with the swearing-in of the new President.
Reality bites and this time, it has fangs and claws.
