Quick note about The Ukraine situation.
It’s interesting, a number of my Boomer and X-er friends have been posting memories of the time before the fall of the Soviet Union. There was always a fear that we were on the edge, that the inevitable would happen. An act of aggression, a misspoken word or 99 Luftballons would lead to the end of everything. I can clearly remember a nun at the Catholic Grammar School I attended saying that a nuclear war was coming, the Soviet Unuon would return and the Jesus would return.
I wonder if the slow build to doom that we are feeling is what my parent felt in 1962. Every day we’re a day closer. Hopefully, like the ships with the missiles, the Russians will back down before the dominos fall.
