End Of An Era - And It's A Good Thing

The Pontiac Aztec is dead. General Motors announced today that their nearly ten-year-old threat to shut down Pontiac is now a done deal. This is a surprise to anyone only recently immigrated to the Planet Earth. Pontiac has been on the cut list since 2001. So at last, it's possible to visit a GM dealership without wearing those goggles used for viewing Medusans.

Happy Birthday To Me!

For those of you who haven't guessed, I'm a year older. I'm 42. I wish Douglas Adams were still around to curse.

So either I am to ponder the question to the ultimate answer...or I'm to have my brains extracted by a couple of white mice.

Not sure which I would dread more.

At any rate, I'm 42 and no closer to understanding Life the Universe and Everything...
