I”d be even happier if the U.N. blew up, of course. A long shot, but I watched the Berlin Wall fall, and in the year of Brexit and Trump (even Moore’s Law is headed for the door), why not think big?
I don”t pretend to understand why one measly crash wiped out zeppelins and the Concorde, respectively, while some like catastrophe can”t finally rid us of the post office, The New York Times, and/or one of the Big Three networks.
I simply go with my gut, and on the cable side, it looks increasingly bad for Fox News right now. Glenn Beck’s media empire as well”from Forbes list to “fail” in only a few quarters. And if Trump does win, retirement-age Rush Limbaugh and his increasingly unhappy affiliates may find no further rationale for staying together. What I”ve called the Great Re-Sorting of America’s right-wing media and think-tank complex will witness a number of big-name casualties, though”maybe even National Review itself?
Admittedly, my predictive record isn”t that impressive. No need to rush over to get a glimpse of your nearest snoozing orangutan or sulking leopard while you still can. But a belly-flopping killer whale? Yeah, you may want to buy that ticket sooner rather than later.
