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.
