The Heraclitean Apocalypse
If I lived in the Mid-West and had starched my shirt for tomorrow, I'd be kinda worried. Don't you think it's been a bad year? First the Tsunami: that's earth and water. Then hurricane Katrina: that's a lot of air, and some more water. Then the Pakistan earthquake: that's more earth. And then last week the fire at the oil storage depot in Hemel Hempstead. That makes up the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse by my reckoning: water, air, earth and fire. We're fucked. The Rapture is coming. Time is near an end. I know. I broke my watch at the ice rink yesterday.
