Dear Alex:

Perhaps I misunderstood you.    If so, I apologize.

The title " Apocalypse Pretty Soon " should have
been the tip-off,  clearly tongue in cheek.

While the zanier elements in these realms need a
good airing out,  I hope the more serious and
careful studies are not tarred with the same brush.

Best wishes
