persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

Sunday, July 20, 2008


Catch the attention of a small kid between three and six and inform him/her he/she should take some action, because in a few years the North Pole will melt and there will be no more Santa, and the elves and all the Reindeer are going to drown and die.

There will be no more Christmas, no more Christmas presents, no more Rudolph.

Tell them to go to their parents and hold marathon temper tantrums. Tell them to scream loudly.

Tell them to hold their breath till they turn blue.

Tell them to pick up the phone and call the White House for them and tell them to cry and shriek. Call congressmen and Senators too. They shouldn't miss this either.

Tell them we didn't intend for this to happen, and that starting somewhere is better than not starting at all.
